Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's team of help desk service technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

  • 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 fee to become part of our Experts Group, but Progent has strict requirements to join:

  • You should show a proven track record as a consultant operating independently in your area of expertise, including a minimum two year record of completed consulting jobs or you must have an active customer base to whom you currently provide ongoing consulting activity.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized application utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
