Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join our staff of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous 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 allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to have standard credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
