Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our staff of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Jobs for Certified Experts for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

  • As a 1099 subcontractor to Progent, you get simplified, risk-free invoicing and consistent payment schedules. In addition, Progent is responsible for receivables collection

  • You need to have a strong track record as a consulting professional operating independently in your area of specialization, including a minimum two year record of completed contracting projects and/or have your own active client base for which you currently provide ongoing consulting services.
  • You have to show that you are an expert in your area of concentration, including showing a long work-related history and strong references, and possess current manufacturer and/or institutional professional qualifications.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom application tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical consulting firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well designed and executed network is a crucial piece for enabling a firm's success, and we apply this credo in our own system environment.
