Additional Facts About Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented managers able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able 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 shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will promote your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from other network support firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client 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-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

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