Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on Progent's team of desktop support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and following a strong results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your skills via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running specialized application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from most network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, 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 responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people 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 us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's growth, and we apply this belief in our corporate system environment. Progent has created a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that allows our in-house engineers and authorized contractors to deliver rapid and effective support, collaborate easily on complex projects, and experience professional and private growth from acting as part of an exciting company ethos of self motivation and freedom.
