More Information Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong results-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will market your skills, but you must provide standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

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

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly growing group of network experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
