Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's team of desktop support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive value-based fee model, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you need to have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills 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 interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and executed information system is a crucial piece for enabling any company's growth, and Progent follows this credo in our corporate system environment. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office network that allows our in-house engineers and authorized contractors to offer rapid and efficient service, collaborate closely on complex jobs, and experience professional and private maturity from acting as a member of a dynamic business ethos of self motivation and freedom.
