Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a strong value-based fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you must have standard credentials for us to market. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

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

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully architected and implemented information system is a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's growth, and Progent follows this credo in our corporate system infrastructure.
