Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous businesses 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 solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can market your talents, but you need to provide standard certifications for Progent to market. If you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a well architected and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for enabling any company's success, and we follow this credo in our corporate network environment.
