Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our team of help desk service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor 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

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from most network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, but we are building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately marked 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 marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
