Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join our staff of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from most consulting companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, but we are building a quickly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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