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

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can expand your skills via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

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