Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a strong value-based fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical network support firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
