Details Concerning Work with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and off-site support professionals. Also, We are seeking talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to provide basic certifications for us to market. If you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
