Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented administrators who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you must provide standard certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business models for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other consulting firms is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
