Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our team of help desk support specialists and off-site support experts. Also, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and offering a strong value-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using custom application tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from typical network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed information system is a crucial piece for accelerating any company's success, and we apply this philosophy in our own system environment.
