Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to market. If you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team.

Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

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