More Information Concerning Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of desktop support specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are hiring experienced managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
