Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our staff of desktop service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

In fact, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated.

Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, 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 offer strong people skills or like working with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.
