More Information Concerning Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom application tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from most consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for 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 job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
