Details Concerning Jobs with Us

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

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills through cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. 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 application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical consulting companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit 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 match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

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