Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's team of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other key application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system can be a crucial piece for enabling any company's success, and Progent follows this credo in our own network environment.
