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

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our team of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong results-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you must have basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having 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 job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close 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 Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor fit.

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