Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from most consulting firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the providing 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 organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth 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 network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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