Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, 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 environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills through interaction with our group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network 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". Still, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated.

A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom.
