Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco certification; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you should provide basic certifications for us to market. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from most consulting companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently 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 an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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