Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, 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

  • You should have a strong track record as a consultant working independently in your field of specialization, including at least a two year history of completed contracting jobs and/or have your own active customer base for which you currently provide ongoing consulting services.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing 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 excellence is a key for growth with us. 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 stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
