Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running specialized application utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from most consulting companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
