Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you should have standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from most network support companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and implemented information system is a pivotal factor for enabling any company's growth, and Progent applies this philosophy in our corporate network infrastructure.
