Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join our team of desktop service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have managed to expand our client base dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Contract Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Mac, Linux-based, and Sun Technology

For over 20 years, our computer professionals have offered affordable and successful network support expertise for companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared support knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped us to retain a strong consulting group and dramatically expand a loyal client base.

The Experts Group is Progent's way to offer customers the services of expert computer support engineers who have in-depth knowledge and work experience in key technologies outside of Progent's core concentration in network support and security. Experts Team members are typically independent engineers and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been thoroughly qualified by Progent to collaborate with our staff engineers to deliver end-to-end, enterprise-class information technology services to small companies. We are continually expanding our Experts Group to meet the particular requirements of our clients.

Our Experts Group currently provides support in these technologies:

  • Macintosh networking and programs
  • Expertise for Linux-based, UNIX-based, and Sun systems
  • Manufacturing Resource Planning, Enterprise Resource Planning, or Customer Relationship Management consulting

  • You will have the security of backup coverage from Progent's staff consultants and other Expert Team members in the event you are unavailable to respond to client demands due to work schedule conflicts, vacation, sickness, or training.
  • 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 be a member of our Experts Group, but we do have these requirements for membership:

  • You must show a proven background as a consultant operating independently in your field of expertise, including at least a two year record of successful consulting jobs and/or have an active client base to which you now deliver continuing support activity.
  • You need to demonstrate that you are an expert in your field of specialization, including showing a long task-relevant record and strong references, and have current manufacturer and/or institutional professional certifications.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed network can be a crucial piece for enabling any firm's growth, and Progent applies this credo in our corporate system infrastructure.
