Details Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of help desk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your skills through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. 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 key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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