Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary software tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
