Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can join our staff of desktop service specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary application utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from other network support companies is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional 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 building close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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