Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are hiring talented administrators able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing 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.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
