Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, We are hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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