Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's team of desktop support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers can enhance your skills via interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants who have verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you must provide standard credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from most network support firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the collective skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
