Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus.

For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from typical consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure
