Details Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our staff of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from most network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located throughout California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
