Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for talented managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can market your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that separates us from typical consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group 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 new paradigm of information technology consulting.
