Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our team of help desk support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. We will promote your skills, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
