More Information Concerning Jobs at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to work on our staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong results-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

  • As a 1099 subcontractor to Progent, you get simplified, risk-free invoicing and consistent payment schedules. In addition, Progent is responsible for receivables collection

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network is a crucial factor for accelerating any firm's success, and we apply this credo in our corporate system infrastructure.
