Details About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will market your talents, but you should have basic certifications for us to work with. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from most consulting firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
