More Information About Work with Us

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

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive value-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you must provide standard credentials for us to market. In case you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
