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

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you should have a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the providing of support 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 commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
