Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment
