Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills via interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates us from most network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across California, but we are building a quickly growing group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
