Details About Work with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's team of help desk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you must have standard credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Contract Work for Certified Application Specialists for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

For more than two decades, our information technology engineers have offered affordable and effective computer consulting services for companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common technical knowledge base, and a collaborative approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to build a strong consulting group and quickly grow a satisfied client base.

The Experts Group is our way to provide customers the services of expert information technology support engineers who have in-depth skills and field background in important technologies outside of Progent's primary concentration in system infrastructure and security.

  • 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 part of Progent's Experts Group, but we do have these requirements for membership:

  • You need to show a strong background as a consultant working independently in your field of expertise, including at least a two year history of completed contracting jobs or you must have an active customer base to which you currently deliver ongoing support activity.
  • You should show that you are an expert in your field of concentration, which includes having a long task-relevant history and excellent references, and possess up-to-date manufacturer or institutional professional qualifications.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical network support firms is the excellence of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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

Get Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure
