Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our staff of help desk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are hiring talented administrators who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. 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 network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
