Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from other consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
