Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of desktop support technicians and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Freelance Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Technology

For more than 20 years, our consulting engineers have offered affordable and effective network consulting services for companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common technical database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to build a strong in-house team and dramatically expand a loyal clientele.

The Experts Group is our way to offer clients the services of expert computer consulting engineers who have advanced skills and work experience in important areas outside of Progent's core concentration in system support and security.

We are always expanding the Experts Team in order to address the special requirements of our customer base.

Our Experts Team now provides consulting in these technologies:

  • Apple OS networking and programs

  • 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 not any cost to become part of our Experts Group, but Progent has the following requirements to join:

  • You must have a strong track record as a consultant working independently in your area of expertise, including at least a two year record of successful contracting jobs and/or have your own active client base to which you currently deliver ongoing support activity.
  • You need to demonstrate that you are an expert in your area of specialization, which includes showing an extensive work-related history and excellent references, and possess current manufacturer and/or industry professional qualifications.
  • You need to be able to carry yourself in a professional way and be self driven and confident in your abilities. You should have excellent people skills and understand how to work effectively by yourself or as a member of a team.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit plan to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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