More Information Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join our staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are hiring experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong value-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can market your skills, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and keeping customers.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network experts from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
