Details About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our team of desktop support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive value-based pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can market your talents, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
