More Information About Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our staff of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

  • You need to show a strong background as a consultant operating on your own in your field of specialization, including a minimum two year record of completed consulting jobs and/or have your own active client base for whom you currently deliver continuing consulting services.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from most network support firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed information system can be a pivotal factor for enabling any firm's growth, and we apply this belief in our corporate system infrastructure.
