Details Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills through interaction with our group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other consulting companies is the high quality of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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