Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you are strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across America.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.
