Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can join our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you must have basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and retaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from most consulting firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network experts from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and executed information system is a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's success, and Progent applies this belief in our own system environment.
