Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are seeking talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have 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 credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate 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 charge to become a member of our Experts Team, but Progent has strict requirements for membership:

  • You must show a strong track record as a consulting professional operating on your own in your area of expertise, including at least a two year history of completed contracting projects and/or have your own active customer base for whom you currently deliver continuing support activity.
  • You have to demonstrate that you are an expert in your area of specialization, including showing a long task-relevant record and strong references, and have up-to-date vendor or institutional professional qualifications.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
