Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, but Progent is building a quickly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
