Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can market your talents, but you should provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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