Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to work on our team of help desk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and following a strong results-based pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should have basic credentials for us to market. If you are strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Having 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 is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships 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 company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.
