Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our staff of help desk service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to have basic certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Freelance Work for Certified Experts for
Windows, Mac, Linux, and Sun Technology

For more than 20 years, our information technology engineers have offered affordable and successful computer support expertise for small businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared technical knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped us to retain a strong consulting group and dramatically grow a loyal clientele.

The Experts Group is our way to provide clients the help of expert information technology support professionals who have advanced skills and field experience in important technologies outside of Progent's primary concentration in system infrastructure and security. Experts Group members are typically independent engineers and sometimes "moonlighters" who have been carefully qualified by us to work closely with our in-house consultants to deliver comprehensive, world-class network services to small and midsize businesses. We are continually enhancing the Experts Group to meet the particular requirements of our clients.

Our Experts Group currently provides consulting in these areas:

  • We will share partner-only benefits from leading technology companies such as Microsoft and Cisco, including no-cost orlow-cost training classes, on-line access to restricted vendor troubleshooting utilities and technical support resources, and downloadable internal use software for education or demonstration use.
  • You will have the security of backup coverage from Progent's staff consultants and other Expert Team members in the event you are unavailable to respond to client demands due to work schedule conflicts, vacation, sickness, or training.
  • As a 1099 subcontractor to Progent, you get simplified, risk-free invoicing and consistent payment schedules. In addition, Progent is responsible for receivables collection

There is not any charge to be a member of Progent's Experts Team, but Progent has strict qualifications to join:

  • You must show a strong background as a consultant working independently in your area of expertise, including at least a two year record of successful contracting projects or you must have an active client base to whom you now deliver continuing consulting services.
  • You need to show that you are an expert in your area of specialization, including showing a long work-related record and strong referrals, and have current vendor and/or institutional professional qualifications.
  • You must be able to carry yourself in a professional way and be self motivated and assured in your abilities. You must have strong inter-personal skills and know how to operate successfully by yourself or as a member of a team.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and implemented network can be a pivotal piece for enabling any company's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our own network infrastructure.
