Details About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on our team of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you need to have basic credentials for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, running specialized software tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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