Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you need to have standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using custom application tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully designed and executed information system can be a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's growth, and we apply this belief in our corporate system infrastructure. Progent has created a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables Progent's staff consultants and certified contractors to deliver rapid and efficient service, cooperate easily on sophisticated jobs, and experience career and private growth from being a member of a dynamic company culture of personal drive and freedom.
