Details Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based fee model, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Contract Jobs for Certified Experts for
Windows, Mac, Linux-based, and Sun Solaris Technology

  • 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 fee to be part of our Experts Team, but Progent has strict qualifications for membership:

  • You must have a strong background as a consultant working independently in your area of specialization, including at least a two year record of completed contracting projects and/or have your own active customer base for whom you currently provide ongoing support services.
  • You should show that you are an expert in your field of concentration, including showing a long work-related history and strong references, and possess current manufacturer and/or industry professional qualifications.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support firms is the excellence of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, however we are building a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated 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 a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for enabling a company's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate system infrastructure. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables Progent's staff engineers and authorized contractors to deliver rapid and efficient support, cooperate closely on sophisticated projects, and gain from career and personal maturity by being a member of a dynamic company culture of personal drive and independence.
