Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-focused fee model, Progent has managed to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning 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 call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will market your talents, but you should have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site customer 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, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, but we are building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
