More Information About Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you must provide standard certifications for us to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging each 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 a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working 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 Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
