Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's team of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can expand your skills via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from most network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's growth, and we follow this philosophy in our own system infrastructure. We have created a fault-tolerant virtual office infrastructure that enables our staff consultants and authorized contractors to deliver fast and effective service, collaborate closely on sophisticated projects, and experience professional and private growth from being part of a dynamic company ethos of personal drive and independence.
