More Information Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to join our team of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you must have basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

  • 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 no fee to be a member of Progent's Experts Team, but we do have strict requirements to join:

  • You must have a strong track record as a consultant working on your own in your field of expertise, including a minimum two year history of successful consulting projects or you must have an active customer base for whom you now deliver continuing support services.
  • You should demonstrate that you have expertise in your field of specialization, which includes showing a long task-relevant record and excellent references, and have up-to-date vendor and/or industry professional qualifications.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using specialized software tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from most network support firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented network can be a pivotal piece for accelerating any company's growth, and Progent applies this credo in our corporate network environment. We have built a non-stop virtual office network that enables our staff consultants and certified contractors to deliver fast and efficient support, cooperate easily on sophisticated projects, and gain from career and personal maturity from acting as part of an exciting company ethos of self motivation and independence.
