Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our team of help desk service specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that can show verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must have standard certifications for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our business models for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from most consulting firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular 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 most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
