Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system consultants with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can promote your skills, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Freelance Work for Certified Experts for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Sun Technology

For more than 20 years, Progent's consulting engineers have offered low-cost and effective network support expertise for small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common technical database, and a collaborative philosophy for problem solving have helped us to retain a strong in-house team and quickly expand a loyal customer base.

The Experts Team is our way to offer clients the services of expert information technology support engineers who have advanced skills and field background in key areas beyond Progent's core focus in network support and security. Experts Group consultants are often independent engineers and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been carefully qualified by us to collaborate with Progent's in-house engineers to provide end-to-end, world-class information technology solutions to small companies. Progent is continually enhancing the Experts Group to address the particular requirements of our clients.

Our Experts Group now provides support in these technologies:

  • Macintosh integration and applications

  • CIO, business analyst, and project logistics services

  • 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 charge to become part of our Experts Team, but Progent has these qualifications for membership:

  • You need to show a proven background as a consultant operating independently in your field of specialization, including at least a two year record of completed contracting projects and/or have your own active client base to which you currently provide continuing consulting activity.
  • You must demonstrate that you have expertise in your field of concentration, which includes having a long work-related history and excellent references, and possess up-to-date vendor and/or institutional professional certifications.
  • You have to know how to carry yourself in a professional way and be self motivated and confident in your skills. You need to have excellent people skills and know how to operate efficiently by yourself or as part of a group.

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

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from ordinary consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and implemented network is a crucial factor for enabling any firm's growth, and we apply this philosophy in our own system infrastructure.
