More Information Concerning Work with Us

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

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive results-based pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you should have standard credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using custom software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from most network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our consulting work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
