Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We will market your skills, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the work properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are published to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a well designed and implemented information system can be a pivotal factor for accelerating a firm's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate network infrastructure.
