Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

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

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join our team of desktop service specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, We have managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will market your skills, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging 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 Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push 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 makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and implemented information system can be a pivotal factor for accelerating any firm's growth, and we apply this credo in our corporate network environment.
