Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you should have standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized software utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We 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 Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having 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 is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. 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 day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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