Details About Work with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system consultants with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a strong value-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Freelance Work for Certified Application Specialists for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux-based, and Sun Solaris Technology

For over 20 years, Progent's consulting engineers have provided affordable and successful network consulting expertise for small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common technical database, and a collaborative approach to problem solving have helped us to build a talented staff and quickly expand a loyal customer base.

The Experts Team is our way to provide clients the services of expert information technology consulting engineers who have in-depth skills and field experience in important areas outside of our primary focus in network support and security. Experts Group consultants are often freelance contractors and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been carefully certified by us to work closely with Progent's in-house engineers to provide comprehensive, enterprise-class network services to small companies.

  • We will share special benefits from top vendors such as Microsoft and Cisco, including no-cost ordiscounted educational seminars, web connections to special vendor support utilities and product maintenance resources, and downloadable internal use programs 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 no charge to be part of our Experts Team, but Progent has strict requirements for membership:

  • You need to show a strong background as a consulting professional working independently in your field of specialization, including a minimum two year history of successful contracting jobs or you must have your own active client base to whom you currently provide continuing consulting activity.
  • You should demonstrate that you have expertise in your field of concentration, including showing a long task-relevant history and strong referrals, and possess up-to-date vendor or industry professional qualifications.
  • You have to know how to carry yourself in a professional manner and be self driven and assured in your abilities. You need to have strong inter-personal skills and be able to operate effectively by yourself or as a member of a team.
  • You should know how to articulate proper goals to customers and other Progent team members and you need to know how analyze projects, produce project plans, and define realistic time lines.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully architected and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for enabling a firm's success, and we apply this credo in our corporate network environment. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that enables Progent's in-house consultants and authorized contractors to offer rapid and efficient support, collaborate easily on sophisticated projects, and experience professional and private maturity by acting as part of an exciting business culture of self motivation and freedom.
