Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals
Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our team of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.
By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.
If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.
We are looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you need to provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.
The most important factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.
To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support only.
Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.
Most of our consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly growing team of network experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.
Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.
Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.
Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.
If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
