Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and remote support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills via interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We will market your skills, but you should have standard certifications for us to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other consulting firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently 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 operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.

Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed network is a crucial factor for accelerating any company's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate system environment.
