Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional services 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 allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you are strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a better professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
