Details About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support firms is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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

Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment
