Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of desktop support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you must provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however we are building a quickly growing group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
