Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will promote your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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