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

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills through cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you should have a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to 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 job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network can be a pivotal piece for enabling any firm's growth, and we apply this philosophy in our own system infrastructure. We have built a non-stop virtual office infrastructure that enables Progent's staff engineers and authorized contractors to offer fast and efficient support, cooperate closely on complex jobs, and gain from professional and personal maturity by being part of a dynamic company ethos of personal drive and freedom.
