Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client care, and following a strong results-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills via interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will promote your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to work with. In case you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom application tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every 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 an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment
