Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our staff of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive value-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can market your talents, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
