Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

Our focus on delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site 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, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
