Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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