Details Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can expand your skills through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment
