Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you should have basic certifications for us to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

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

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.

Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure
