Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our staff of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses 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 allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

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

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working 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-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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