Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our client list dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should have basic certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

For over two decades, Progent's information technology engineers have provided affordable and successful network consulting expertise for businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common support knowledge base, and a collaborative philosophy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting group and quickly expand a satisfied customer base.

  • 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 become part of Progent's Experts Group, but Progent has these qualifications for membership:

  • You must show a strong background as a consulting professional operating on your own in your field of specialization, including at least a two year record of successful contracting projects and/or have an active client base for which you currently provide continuing consulting services.
  • You should demonstrate that you have expertise in your area of concentration, which includes showing a long work-related history and strong references, and possess current manufacturer and/or industry professional certifications.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary application tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, however we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented information system is a pivotal factor for enabling any company's success, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate network infrastructure.
