Details About Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a strong value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your skills via interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can market your skills, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from typical consulting companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network is a crucial piece for enabling any firm's growth, and we follow this philosophy in our own system infrastructure.
