Details About Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can promote your skills, but you should have basic credentials for us to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
