Details About Work with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's team of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will market your talents, but you should have basic credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn 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 rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
