Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's team of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to have basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from other consulting companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
