Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you must have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Contract Jobs for Certified Experts for
Windows, Mac, Linux-based, and Sun Technology

For more than 20 years, Progent's information technology engineers have offered affordable and effective computer support services for businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared technical database, and a collaborative philosophy for problem solving have enabled us to build a talented consulting group 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 no charge to become a member of our Experts Group, but Progent has strict requirements for membership:

  • You need to have a strong background as a consultant operating independently in your field of expertise, including a minimum two year history of successful contracting jobs and/or have your own active customer base for whom you currently provide continuing support services.
  • You need to demonstrate that you are an expert in your area of specialization, including having an extensive work-related record and excellent references, and have up-to-date manufacturer or industry professional certifications.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services 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 operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed network is a pivotal piece for accelerating any firm's success, and we follow this credo in our corporate network infrastructure. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that allows Progent's staff engineers and certified contractors to offer rapid and efficient support, collaborate easily on sophisticated jobs, and experience professional and private growth by being part of an exciting business ethos of self motivation and independence.
