Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have recognized certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you should have standard credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, but we are building a quickly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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