Details About Work with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and offering a strong results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our client base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from most consulting companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent 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 sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

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