Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented network can be a pivotal piece for enabling any company's success, and Progent follows this belief in our own system environment.
