Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join our team of help desk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. We will market your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away 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 schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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