Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a strong results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your skills through interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you should have standard certifications for us to work with. In case you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
