Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are hiring experienced managers able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure 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 lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit 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 live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed network can be a pivotal piece for enabling a firm's growth, and Progent follows this credo in our own network environment.
