Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to join Progent's team of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong results-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will enhance your knowledge through interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you must provide standard credentials for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Freelance Jobs for Certified Experts for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Technology

For more than 20 years, Progent's information technology professionals have offered affordable and successful computer support expertise for companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States.

  • As a 1099 subcontractor to Progent, you get simplified, risk-free invoicing and consistent payment schedules. In addition, Progent is responsible for receivables collection

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the job properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented network is a pivotal piece for enabling any firm's success, and Progent follows this credo in our own system environment. We have created a non-stop virtual office infrastructure that allows our staff consultants and authorized contractors to deliver fast and effective service, cooperate closely on sophisticated jobs, and experience professional and personal growth from being part of an exciting company ethos of personal drive and independence.
