Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-based pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

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