Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our team of help desk service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show recognized credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized application tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully designed and executed information system is a pivotal factor for accelerating any firm's growth, and we apply this belief in our corporate system infrastructure.
