Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive value-focused fee model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction 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, using custom software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely 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 any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
