Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our team of help desk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong value-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom application tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, 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 because of daily drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and executed information system can be a crucial factor for enabling a firm's growth, and we follow this credo in our corporate network infrastructure.
