Details About Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive value-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can market your skills, but you should have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from most consulting firms is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, however we are building a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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

Get Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's success, and Progent follows this belief in our own network infrastructure.
