Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join our team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from most consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job 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 network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
