Details Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running specialized application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
