Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can enhance your skills through interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, 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 one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We 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 sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
