Details About Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and following a strong results-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will market your skills, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Contract Jobs for Qualified Application Specialists for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

  • 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 fee to be a member of our Experts Group, but Progent has the following qualifications to join:

  • You need to have a proven track record as a consulting professional working independently in your field of specialization, including at least a two year record of completed contracting projects or you must have your own active customer base for whom you now deliver ongoing consulting services.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other consulting companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly growing group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer relationships 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 heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented network can be a crucial piece for enabling a firm's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate system infrastructure. Progent has built a non-stop virtual office network that allows our staff engineers and authorized contractors to deliver rapid and effective support, collaborate closely on sophisticated jobs, and gain from career and private maturity from being part of a dynamic company culture of self motivation and independence.
