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

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and following a strong results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you should provide standard certifications for us to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using specialized application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from other consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be done remotely, offering 100% 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 customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support 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 operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success 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 steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed information system is a pivotal piece for accelerating any firm's success, and we follow this credo in our own network infrastructure. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables Progent's staff consultants and authorized contractors to offer rapid and efficient service, collaborate easily on sophisticated projects, and experience career and personal growth by being a member of an exciting business culture of self motivation and freedom.
