Details Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you should have basic credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well architected and executed information system is a pivotal factor for accelerating any firm's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate network infrastructure. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables our in-house engineers and authorized contractors to offer rapid and efficient service, collaborate closely on sophisticated projects, and gain from professional and personal growth by being part of a dynamic business culture of personal drive and freedom.
