More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our client base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can expand your skills through interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can promote your talents, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely 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 Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
