More Information About Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our team of help desk service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from most network support companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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