Details About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning 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 call yourself a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your skills, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Contract Jobs for Qualified Application Specialists for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

For more than two decades, Progent's consulting engineers have provided affordable and successful computer support expertise for companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the United States.

The Experts Team is Progent's way to offer customers the services of expert computer consulting engineers who have in-depth knowledge and field experience in key technologies outside of Progent's core focus in network infrastructure and security. Experts Group consultants are often freelance contractors and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been thoroughly qualified by Progent to collaborate with our in-house consultants to deliver end-to-end, world-class network solutions to small companies.

  • 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 not any fee to become a member of Progent's Experts Group, but Progent has strict qualifications for membership:

  • You need to have a proven track record as a consultant operating independently in your area of specialization, including a minimum two year history of completed contracting projects or you must have an active client base for whom you now provide continuing consulting services.
  • You should demonstrate that you are an expert in your area of specialization, which includes showing an extensive task-relevant history and excellent references, and have up-to-date manufacturer or industry professional qualifications.
  • You need to be able to present yourself in a professional way and be self motivated and assured in your abilities. You should have excellent communications skills and know how to operate successfully by yourself or as part of a group.

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

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel 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 maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each 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 a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and implemented network is a pivotal factor for accelerating a company's success, and Progent applies this philosophy in our own system environment. We have built a fault-tolerant virtual office infrastructure that enables Progent's staff consultants and authorized contractors to deliver rapid and effective service, cooperate easily on complex projects, and experience professional and personal maturity by acting as a member of an exciting business culture of self motivation and independence.
