Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong value-focused fee model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you should have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of network experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the high standards 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 delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
