Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based fee model, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running specialized application tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located across California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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