Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are hiring talented managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you are strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Freelance Work for Qualified Application Specialists for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux-based, and Sun Technology

For over 20 years, Progent's consulting engineers have offered affordable and successful computer support services for companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common technical database, and a team philosophy for problem solving have enabled us to build a strong consulting group and dramatically expand a loyal client base.

The Experts Group is our way to offer customers the services of specialized computer support professionals who have in-depth knowledge and field background in key areas beyond Progent's primary focus in system support and security. Experts Team members are often freelance contractors and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been carefully qualified by us to work closely with our staff engineers to deliver end-to-end, enterprise-class information technology solutions to small businesses. We are continually enhancing the Experts Group to address the special requirements of our customer base.

Progent's Experts Group currently offers consulting in these technologies:

  • Apple OS integration and applications

  • Line-of-business and vertical application help

  • 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 no cost to become part of Progent's Experts Team, but Progent has strict requirements for membership:

  • You need to show a strong track record as a consultant working independently in your field of specialization, including a minimum two year history of successful contracting projects and/or have your own active client base to whom you now provide continuing support services.
  • You should demonstrate that you are an expert in your area of concentration, which includes showing an extensive task-relevant record and excellent referrals, and have current manufacturer or institutional professional qualifications.
  • You should know how to present yourself in a professional way and be self motivated and assured in your abilities. You must have excellent inter-personal skills and be able to work effectively alone or as part of a team.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from typical network support companies is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services 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.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
