Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our staff of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented managers who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong results-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution.

Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.
