Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's team of help desk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will promote your talents, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve 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 consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately marked 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 a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed network is a pivotal factor for enabling a firm's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our own network environment.
