More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills through interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

For more than two decades, our consulting engineers have provided low-cost and successful computer consulting expertise for small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared technical database, and a collaborative approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting group and quickly grow a loyal customer base.

The Experts Group is our way to offer clients the services of specialized computer support engineers who have advanced skills and work experience in important technologies outside of Progent's primary focus in network support and security. Experts Group members are typically freelance engineers and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been thoroughly certified by us to work closely with Progent's staff engineers to deliver comprehensive, world-class network services to small businesses. We are always expanding our Experts Group to address the particular requirements of our clients.

Progent's Experts Group now provides support in these technologies:

  • Macintosh networking and applications
  • Expertise for Linux, UNIX-based, and Sun Solaris environments
  • Manufacturing Resource Planning, Enterprise Resource Planning, or CRM consulting
  • Strategic and vertical application support
  • CIO, business analyst, and project management services
  • Custom applications development and integration

  • DBM support and performance help
  • Business information consulting
  • Telecommunications architecture consulting

  • Our veteran marketing staff takes care of all aspects of promoting your skills and areas of knowledge into our rapidly growing customer base, so you spend less effort finding customers and extra time making money.

  • We will share partner-only benefits from leading technology companies including Microsoft and Cisco, including free ordiscounted training classes, web access to special vendor support tools and technical maintenance resources, and on-line in-house use programs for training and/or demonstration purposes.
  • 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 not any cost to become part of our Experts Group, but we do have strict requirements for membership:

  • You must show a proven background as a consultant operating independently in your field of expertise, including a minimum two year record of successful consulting jobs and/or have your own active client base for which you currently deliver ongoing consulting services.
  • You have to show that you have expertise in your field of specialization, which includes having an extensive work-related record and strong referrals, and possess current vendor and/or industry professional certifications.
  • You have to be able to carry yourself in a professional way and be self driven and assured in your skills. You need to have excellent communications skills and know how to work successfully by yourself or as a member of a team.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully designed and executed information system can be a pivotal piece for enabling a company's growth, and we apply this belief in our own system infrastructure.
