Details About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system consultants with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our team of help desk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can market your skills, but you need to have standard credentials for us to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and executed network is a crucial factor for accelerating any company's growth, and Progent applies this philosophy in our corporate network environment.
