Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our team of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong results-based pricing structure, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will market your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

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

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and executed network is a crucial piece for enabling any firm's growth, and we follow this credo in our own system environment.
