Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical help to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
