Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
