Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for talented managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from other network support companies is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups match the excellence that defines 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 engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery 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 marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position 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 toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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