Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

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

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key areas, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance 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 awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

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

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system can be a crucial factor for accelerating a firm's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate network environment.
