Additional Facts About Work with Us
Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians
Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.
By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.
If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.
Progent is hiring consultants that have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our business models for finding and keeping customers.
The main factor that separates Progent from most network support firms is the quality of our service staff.

Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.
Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.
The majority of our consultants are situated across California, but Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models.

Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.
On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.
