Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous companies 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 solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you must provide basic certifications for us to work with. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment 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 promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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