Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, We have managed to increase our client list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system can be a pivotal factor for accelerating a firm's success, and we apply this credo in our corporate system environment.
