Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Contract Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

For over 20 years, Progent's computer professionals have provided affordable and effective network consulting services for companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States.

The Experts Group is Progent's way to offer clients the services of specialized computer support engineers who have in-depth knowledge and work background in key areas outside of Progent's core concentration in network infrastructure and security.

  • 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 not any charge to become a member of Progent's Experts Group, but we do have these requirements to join:

  • You should have a strong background as a consulting professional operating independently in your field of expertise, including at least a two year record of completed contracting projects and/or have an active customer base to whom you now deliver ongoing support activity.
  • You have to demonstrate that you have expertise in your area of specialization, including showing an extensive work-related history and strong referrals, and have up-to-date vendor and/or industry professional certifications.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job 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 network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
