Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can expand your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing group of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “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 key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully designed and implemented information system can be a crucial factor for accelerating a firm's success, and Progent applies this belief in our own system infrastructure.
