Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's staff of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will promote your skills, but you must have basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We 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 Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
