Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of help desk service specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent 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 an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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