More Information Concerning Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced managers who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge through interaction with our group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you are strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running custom application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from other consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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