Additional Facts About Work with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are hiring experienced managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and following a strong results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you should have standard credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other network support companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support work can be done off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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