Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and remote support experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that separates us from ordinary consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of our consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
