Details About Work with Us

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

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our team of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Sun Technology

For over two decades, our consulting professionals have provided low-cost and successful network support services for small businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared support knowledge base, and a collaborative approach to problem solving have helped Progent to build a strong staff and dramatically expand a satisfied customer base.

  • As a 1099 subcontractor to Progent, you get simplified, risk-free invoicing and consistent payment schedules. In addition, Progent is responsible for receivables collection

  • You must show a proven track record as a consultant operating independently in your field of specialization, including a minimum two year history of successful consulting projects and/or have an active client base for whom you currently deliver ongoing support services.
  • You have to show that you are an expert in your area of specialization, which includes having an extensive task-relevant history and strong references, and have up-to-date vendor and/or industry professional qualifications.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom application utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
