Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running specialized software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
