Details About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system can be a crucial piece for enabling any company's growth, and we apply this philosophy in our corporate system infrastructure.
