Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can market your talents, but you need to have standard credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Work for Certified Application Specialists for
Windows, Mac, Linux, and Sun Technology

For more than two decades, Progent's information technology engineers have provided low-cost and successful computer support expertise for businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the United States.

The Experts Group is our way to provide customers the help of specialized information technology support professionals who have advanced skills and field background in important areas beyond our core focus in network infrastructure and security.

  • 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 charge to be a member of our Experts Group, but Progent has these requirements for membership:

  • You should show a proven background as a consulting professional working independently in your field of expertise, including at least a two year record of successful consulting projects and/or have your own active client base for whom you currently deliver ongoing support activity.
  • You must show that you are an expert in your area of specialization, which includes showing a long task-relevant history and excellent referrals, and possess current manufacturer and/or institutional professional certifications.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that separates us from most consulting companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our consulting services can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, 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 we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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

Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for accelerating any company's growth, and we follow this credo in our own system infrastructure.
