Details About Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a strong results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from most consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however we are building a rapidly expanding team of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
