Details About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can join our staff of desktop support specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that have recognized credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. We will promote your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from other consulting firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network can be a crucial factor for accelerating any firm's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our own network environment.
