Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join our team of help desk support technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you must have standard certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
