Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting companies is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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