Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with CCIE certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Freelance Jobs for Certified Experts for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux-based, and Sun Technology

For more than 20 years, Progent's computer professionals have offered affordable and successful network consulting expertise for companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common support database, and a collaborative approach to problem resolution have helped us to retain a strong in-house team and dramatically expand a loyal client base.

The Experts Group is our way to provide customers the services of expert information technology consulting engineers who have in-depth skills and field experience in key areas outside of our primary focus in system support and security. Experts Group consultants are often freelance contractors and occasionally "moonlighters" who are thoroughly certified by us to collaborate with our in-house consultants to deliver comprehensive, world-class information technology services to small companies. We are always expanding our Experts Group to address the particular requirements of our customer base.

Our Experts Group now provides consulting in these areas:

  • Macintosh integration and programs
  • Expertise for Linux-powered, UNIX-based, and Sun systems
  • Manufacturing Resource Planning, Enterprise Resource Planning, or Customer Relationship Management expertise
  • Line-of-business and specialized application support
  • Chief Information Officer, business analyst, and project logistics outsourcing
  • Custom program design and integration
  • Web, eCommerce, EDI, and customer portal development and integration
  • SQL management and performance consulting
  • Management information consulting
  • Telecommunications systems support

Benefits of being part of Progent's Experts Team include:

  • By associating with us, you can leverage the momentum of our explosive growth and top-notch recognition in the market. By having a team of talented and dedicated professionals, offering attentive client care, and following a proven, ROI-focused pricing structure, we have quadrupled our clientele over the past few years and Progent currently delivers consulting services to hundreds of companies in California and across the U.S.
  • Progent's experienced marketing team handles all facets of marketing your skills and technical expertise into our rapidly expanding customer base, so you expend less effort signing up clients and more time making revenue.
  • Progent will assist in communications between you and our core group of experienced Microsoft and Cisco certified consultants who act as the gateway to the decision makers among Progent's clients.
  • Our selling and operations staffs will take care of the complete sales and contracting cycle, from opportunity generation, project approval, customer needs definition, skills matching, job scoping proposal generation, agreement negotiation and execution. Your exclusive focus is on providing high-level consulting expertise.
  • We will provide you connections to our sophisticated virtual office infrastructure, offering professional conference sites throughout Northern California, as well as Internet and telecomm connectivity anywhere in the U.S.
  • You will have the benefit of our extensive knowledge base, procedures based on best practices, library of template-deliverable documents, and the shared experience from one of the country's largest independent groups of experienced network engineers.
  • We will pass on special benefits from leading vendors including Microsoft and Cisco, including free orlow-cost educational seminars, on-line connections to restricted vendor support tools and technical maintenance resources, and downloadable in-house use software for training and/or sales use.
  • You will have the security of backup coverage from Progent's staff consultants and other Expert Team members in the event you are unavailable to respond to client demands due to work schedule conflicts, vacation, sickness, or training.
  • 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 charge to become part of our Experts Team, but we do have strict qualifications to join:

  • You should show a proven background as a consulting professional operating on your own in your field of expertise, including a minimum two year record of completed contracting projects or you must have an active customer base for whom you now deliver ongoing consulting activity.
  • You should demonstrate that you are an expert in your field of concentration, including having a long task-relevant history and excellent references, and have current manufacturer and/or institutional professional certifications.
  • You need to know how to carry yourself in a professional manner and be self driven and confident in your skills. You need to have excellent people skills and understand how to work successfully by yourself or as part of a group.
  • You need to be able to communicate realistic expectations to customers and fellow Progent team members and you need to know how scope out projects, produce project plans, and define realistic time lines.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital application, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career 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 series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a well designed and implemented information system is a pivotal factor for enabling a firm's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our corporate system environment. We have built a non-stop virtual office infrastructure that allows our in-house consultants and authorized contractors to offer rapid and effective service, collaborate easily on sophisticated projects, and experience career and personal maturity by being part of a dynamic business ethos of self motivation and independence.
