Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that have recognized credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
