Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's team of help desk support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you must have basic certifications for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from most consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures.

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 steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, 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-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
