Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your skills through interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Work for Qualified Application Specialists for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux, and Sun Solaris Technology

For more than 20 years, Progent's consulting professionals have offered low-cost and successful computer support expertise for companies in Northern California and across the United States.

  • Progent will share special benefits from top technology companies such as Microsoft and Cisco, including no-cost orlow-cost educational seminars, on-line access to special vendor troubleshooting tools and product support resources, and downloadable internal use software for training and/or sales 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 fee to become part of our Experts Group, but we do have these qualifications to join:

  • You must show a proven track record as a consultant working on your own in your area of specialization, including a minimum two year history of completed consulting jobs or you must have your own active customer base for which you currently deliver continuing consulting activity.
  • You should show that you are an expert in your field of concentration, which includes showing a long task-relevant history and excellent referrals, and have current manufacturer or industry professional certifications.
  • You have to know how to carry yourself in a professional way and be self motivated and assured in your skills. You should have strong communications skills and be able to operate efficiently alone or as a member of a team.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using custom application tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical consulting companies is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every 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 a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for enabling any company's success, and we apply this belief in our own network infrastructure.
