Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our team of desktop support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of 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, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a well architected and executed network can be a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's success, and Progent applies this philosophy in our corporate network infrastructure.
