Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-based pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you should have basic credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

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