Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking talented managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can promote your talents, but you must provide standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Mac, Linux, and Sun Solaris Technology

For more than two decades, Progent's consulting engineers have offered low-cost and effective computer consulting expertise for companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States.

Experts Team consultants are typically freelance engineers and sometimes "moonlighters" who are carefully certified by us to work closely with our in-house consultants to provide comprehensive, enterprise-class network services to small businesses.

  • 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 we do have the following qualifications to join:

  • You need to show a strong background as a consultant operating independently in your area of expertise, including at least a two year history of successful consulting projects or you must have an active client base for which you currently deliver continuing support activity.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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