Details Concerning Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our staff of desktop support technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and following a competitive value-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from other consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good 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.
