Additional Facts About Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's staff of help desk service technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to work with. In case you are adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom application utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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