Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical help to small organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries 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 economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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