Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's team of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills via interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Contract Jobs for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux, and Sun Solaris Technology

For over 20 years, our information technology engineers have provided low-cost and effective computer support services for businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common support knowledge base, and a team philosophy for problem resolution have helped us to build a talented consulting group and dramatically grow a loyal 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

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from typical network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy professionals 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 providing the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently 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 Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed network can be a crucial factor for accelerating a firm's success, and we follow this philosophy in our own network infrastructure. We have built a non-stop virtual office infrastructure that enables our in-house consultants and authorized contractors to offer rapid and effective support, cooperate closely on complex jobs, and experience professional and personal growth from acting as part of a dynamic company ethos of personal drive and freedom.
