Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented managers able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class client services, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide basic certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical network support companies is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth 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 continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. 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 morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for enabling any company's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our own system environment. Progent has created a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables our staff engineers and authorized contractors to deliver fast and effective support, cooperate closely on sophisticated jobs, and gain from career and private growth by being part of an exciting company ethos of personal drive and freedom.
