Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of desktop support specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are hiring experienced administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you need to provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
