Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of help desk service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
