Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's team of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have verifiable credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, using custom application tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from most network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for accelerating any company's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate system infrastructure. Progent has created a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that enables our in-house consultants and authorized contractors to offer rapid and efficient service, collaborate easily on sophisticated projects, and experience career and personal growth from being a member of a dynamic company ethos of personal drive and freedom.
