Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on our team of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's work environment will make you a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated across California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed information system can be a crucial factor for enabling a firm's success, and we follow this belief in our own system infrastructure.
