Details Concerning Work with Us

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

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have CCIE certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our staff of help desk service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are looking for talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, however we are building a quickly growing team of network professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company models.

Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. 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 continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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