Additional Facts About Work with Us

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking experienced managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, We have been able to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will expand your skills via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good 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 fee to become a member of Progent's Experts Group, but we do have strict qualifications to join:

  • You should have a proven background as a consultant working independently in your area of specialization, including a minimum two year record of successful consulting jobs and/or have an active client base for which you currently deliver ongoing support services.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized software utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from most network support firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be done off-site, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone 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 stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented network is a crucial piece for accelerating any firm's success, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate system environment. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables Progent's in-house engineers and certified contractors to deliver rapid and effective support, collaborate closely on complex jobs, and gain from career and private growth from being a member of an exciting company culture of personal drive and independence.
