Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and computer help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can market your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
