Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on our staff of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills via interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for us to market. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located across Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing 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 position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

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