Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians
Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced managers able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.
By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.
For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications.

If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary software tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining customers.

Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.
To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.
Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.
Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California however Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.
Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.
Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.
On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.
If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
