Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join our staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can market your talents, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running custom application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across California, but Progent is building a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed information system can be a crucial factor for accelerating any firm's success, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate system environment.
