Details Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, using custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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