Details About Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Contract Jobs for Certified Application Specialists for

  • 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 Progent's Experts Team, but Progent has the following requirements for membership:

  • You must show a strong track record as a consulting professional operating on your own in your field of specialization, including a minimum two year record of successful consulting jobs and/or have an active customer base to whom you now deliver continuing support activity.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
