Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive value-based fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently 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 check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working 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 company heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
