Details Concerning Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, 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 most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good 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 more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running specialized application utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive 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 keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
