Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client care, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth 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 technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

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

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and executed network is a crucial factor for accelerating any firm's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our own network environment.
