Details About Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can market your talents, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from other network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
