Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of helpdesk service specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you must provide standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Freelance Jobs for Qualified Experts for

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

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

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed network can be a crucial factor for accelerating any firm's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our corporate system environment.
