Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will expand your skills via interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will promote your talents, but you need to have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone 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 confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through.
