Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you should have basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized application tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from typical consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
