Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians
Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.
By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.
For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.
We are looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have 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, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can market your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.
Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.
On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.
