Details Concerning Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to join our staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive value-focused fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Contract Work for Qualified Application Specialists for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux-based, and Sun 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

There is no fee to be part of Progent's Experts Team, but Progent has these requirements for membership:

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, but we are building a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
