Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants with CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can market your talents, but you should provide standard certifications for us to market. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however we are building a quickly growing team of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
