Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to join our team of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients expect certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored.

A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling 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 traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.
