Details Concerning Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a strong value-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will promote your skills, but you must provide standard credentials for us to work with. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from other network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully designed and implemented network is a crucial factor for accelerating a company's growth, and we apply this philosophy in our own network environment.
