Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong results-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer list rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from other consulting firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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