Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
