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

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other consulting companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented network is a pivotal factor for accelerating any company's growth, and we apply this philosophy in our corporate system environment.
