Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you must have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using specialized software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
