Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and computer help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
