Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized application tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals.

Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently marked the providing 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.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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