More Information Concerning Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our staff of help desk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary application tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from most network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals.

Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive 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 interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
