Details Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our staff of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from most consulting companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked 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 a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
