Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join our team of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide standard credentials for us to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely 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

There is not any cost to become a member of Progent's Experts Group, but we do have strict qualifications for membership:

  • You need to show a proven background as a consulting professional operating on your own in your field of expertise, including a minimum two year history of completed consulting jobs or you must have your own active customer base for which you currently deliver continuing consulting services.
  • You need to show that you have expertise in your field of specialization, including showing a long task-relevant record and strong referrals, and have current manufacturer or institutional professional qualifications.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from most network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure
