More Information Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can market your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
