Details About Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our staff of desktop support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and following a strong value-focused fee model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients will expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will market your skills, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our 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 client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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