More Information Concerning Work with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our team of help desk support specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can promote your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from typical network support firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across California, however we are building a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

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