Additional Facts About Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you must have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you are strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
