Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have 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 one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed network can be a pivotal piece for enabling any company's success, and we apply this credo in our own system infrastructure.
