Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking experienced administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
