Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our client base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical support to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running specialized application tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout California, but Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close customer contacts and by operating 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-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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