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

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our team of help desk service specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong value-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your knowledge via interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that have recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not having 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 expect certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every 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 we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
