Additional Facts About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk service technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical network support companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

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