Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are hiring talented managers able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

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

For more than two decades, Progent's computer engineers have offered low-cost and effective network consulting expertise for businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared technical knowledge base, and a team philosophy for problem solving have helped us to build a strong in-house team and dramatically grow a satisfied clientele.

The Experts Team is our way to provide clients the services of specialized information technology consulting engineers who have advanced skills and field background in key technologies outside of Progent's core focus in system support and security.

  • 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
Working with the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and executed network can be a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's growth, and we follow this credo in our corporate system environment.
