Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of desktop support specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive value-based fee model, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized application tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well architected and executed network can be a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's success, and we apply this philosophy in our own network infrastructure.
