Details About Jobs with Us

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

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system consultants with CCIE certification; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout California, however we are building a quickly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to 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 information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully architected and implemented information system is a crucial piece for enabling any firm's growth, and Progent applies this philosophy in our corporate network infrastructure. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that allows our staff engineers and certified contractors to deliver fast and efficient support, collaborate closely on sophisticated projects, and gain from career and private maturity by being part of an exciting company ethos of self motivation and independence.
