Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join our staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running specialized software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our business models for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of daily drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts 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 we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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