Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong results-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals that have recognized credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Freelance Work for Qualified Application Specialists for
Windows, Mac, Linux, and Sun Solaris Technology

For over two decades, Progent's computer professionals have provided affordable and effective network consulting services for businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common technical database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped us to build a strong in-house team and quickly grow 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

There is not any cost to be a member of Progent's Experts Group, but we do have strict qualifications to join:

  • You must have a proven background as a consultant operating independently in your field of specialization, including at least a two year history of completed consulting jobs and/or have your own active client base to which you currently deliver continuing consulting activity.
  • You must show that you are an expert in your area of concentration, which includes having an extensive task-relevant record and strong referrals, and have up-to-date manufacturer and/or industry professional qualifications.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing team of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
