Details About Opportunities with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals to join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Freelance Work for Certified Experts for

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

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
