Details About Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive value-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical consulting companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close customer contacts 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 Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed information system can be a crucial factor for accelerating any company's success, and Progent applies this philosophy in our own network infrastructure.
