Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using custom software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for enabling a company's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our own system infrastructure. Progent has built a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that allows our in-house consultants and certified contractors to offer fast and efficient service, collaborate closely on sophisticated projects, and experience career and private growth from acting as part of an exciting business culture of personal drive and independence.
