Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee model, We have managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and technical support to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

  • 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 a member of our Experts Team, but Progent has strict qualifications for membership:

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and executed information system can be a pivotal factor for enabling a firm's success, and we apply this philosophy in our own system environment.
