Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to work on our staff of help desk service specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

For over 20 years, our consulting engineers have provided low-cost and successful computer consulting expertise for businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared technical database, and a team philosophy for problem solving have helped us to retain a strong staff and dramatically grow a loyal clientele.

The Experts Group is Progent's way to provide customers the services of specialized information technology consulting engineers who have advanced skills and work background in key areas outside of Progent's primary focus in network infrastructure and security. Experts Team members are typically independent contractors and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been thoroughly qualified by us to collaborate with our in-house engineers to provide end-to-end, enterprise-class information technology services to small businesses. Progent is continually expanding the Experts Group to address the special requirements of our clients.

Our Experts Group now provides support in these technologies:

  • Macintosh networking and applications
  • Consulting for Linux, UNIX, and Sun Solaris systems
  • Manufacturing Resource Planning, Enterprise Resource Planning, or Customer Relationship Management customization
  • Strategic and vertical program help
  • CIO, business analyst, and project management services

  • By working with us, you can leverage the impact of Progent's dramatic growth and top-notch recognition in the industry. By maintaining a group of skilled and committed consultants, providing attentive customer support, and following a strong, value-oriented billing model, we have quadrupled our clientele over the past few years and Progent currently delivers consulting support to hundreds of companies in California and throughout the United States.
  • Our experienced marketing staff takes care of all facets of promoting your skills and areas of knowledge into our quickly expanding client base, so you expend less effort finding customers and more time generating money.
  • Progent will assist in relationship building between you and our core team of experienced Microsoft and Cisco certified consultants who act as the gateway to the key executives among Progent's customers.
  • Our selling and operations groups will manage the complete sales and engagement process, from lead identification, job approval, client requirements definition, capabilities matching, project analysis proposal generation, contract negotiation and execution. Your entire responsibility is on providing high-level consulting service.
  • We will provide you connections to our advanced virtual office environment, including professional meeting/work sites throughout Northern California, as well as data and voice connectivity anywhere in the United States.
  • You will have the benefit of our vast knowledge base, processes based on best practices, library of professional documents, and the aggregate experience from one of Northern California's largest pool of experienced network professionals.
  • Progent will share special benefits from leading vendors including Microsoft and Cisco, including no-cost orlow-cost training classes, on-line access to restricted vendor troubleshooting utilities and technical maintenance resources, and on-line internal use software for training and/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 cost to become part of our Experts Group, but Progent has the following qualifications for membership:

  • You need to have a proven background as a consultant operating independently in your area of specialization, including a minimum two year record of completed consulting projects or you must have an active customer base to which you now deliver ongoing support services.
  • You have to demonstrate that you have expertise in your field of concentration, which includes showing an extensive task-relevant record and excellent references, and possess current manufacturer or industry professional qualifications.
  • You should know how to carry yourself in a professional manner and be self driven and assured in your abilities. You must have excellent inter-personal skills and know how to operate efficiently by yourself or as part of a team.
  • You have to be able to communicate realistic expectations to clients and other Progent team members and you should know how evaluate tasks, create task plans, and estimate reasonable work schedules.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, but we are building a quickly growing group of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully designed and implemented information system can be a crucial factor for accelerating any company's success, and Progent applies this belief in our own system environment.
