Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

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

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive value-based fee model, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can market your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly 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. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
