Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to work on our team of help desk support technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are looking for talented managers able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
