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

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco certification; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will market your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently marked 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 an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
