Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join Progent's team of help desk support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. For 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 certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
