Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Freelance Jobs for Qualified Experts for

  • As a 1099 subcontractor to Progent, you get simplified, risk-free invoicing and consistent payment schedules. In addition, Progent is responsible for receivables collection

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and retaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network can be a pivotal factor for enabling any company's success, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate system infrastructure. We have created a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that allows our staff consultants and certified contractors to deliver fast and effective service, collaborate easily on complex jobs, and gain from career and private maturity by acting as a member of an exciting business culture of self motivation and independence.
