Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to join our staff of help desk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive value-based fee structure, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, running specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, but we are building a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. 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 steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched 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 common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure
