Details Concerning Work with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you must provide standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Contract Jobs for Certified Application Specialists for

  • 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 no cost to become a member of our Experts Group, but Progent has the following requirements for membership:

  • You must have a proven track record as a consultant working independently in your area of specialization, including a minimum two year record of successful contracting projects or you must have your own active client base for which you now provide continuing consulting services.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
