Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom application tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America.

These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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