Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate 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

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Get Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network is a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our own network infrastructure.
