Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a strong results-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must have standard certifications for us to work with. If you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery 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 sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

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 benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

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