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

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you should have standard certifications for us to work with. If you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every 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 a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed information system is a pivotal piece for enabling any company's success, and we follow this philosophy in our own system infrastructure. We have built a fault-tolerant virtual office infrastructure that enables our in-house engineers and certified contractors to offer rapid and efficient service, collaborate easily on sophisticated jobs, and gain from career and personal growth from acting as part of a dynamic company culture of personal drive and freedom.
