Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you must have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from typical consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and implemented information system can be a crucial piece for accelerating any firm's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our own network infrastructure.
