Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you must have basic credentials for us to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent.

Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
