Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should have standard certifications for us to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

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