Details Concerning Work with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills via interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using custom software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, however we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, 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 wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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