Additional Facts About Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored.

Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.
