Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients expect certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you must provide standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from other consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of network consulting.

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