Details About Work with Us

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

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE certification; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our team of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other consulting companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating 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 us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
