Details About Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Get Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and executed information system is a pivotal piece for enabling a firm's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate system infrastructure. We have created a non-stop virtual office infrastructure that enables Progent's staff consultants and certified contractors to offer fast and effective support, cooperate easily on complex jobs, and experience professional and personal maturity from being part of a dynamic business ethos of personal drive and independence.
