Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized application tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from other network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing team of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a well designed and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's success, and we follow this credo in our own network infrastructure. We have created a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables our in-house consultants and certified contractors to deliver fast and effective service, cooperate easily on complex projects, and experience career and private growth from being part of an exciting company culture of personal drive and independence.
