Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with our staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom application tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well designed and executed information system can be a crucial factor for enabling any firm's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our corporate system environment.
