Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are hiring experienced managers able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and following a strong results-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can market your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Freelance Work for Certified Application Specialists for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

  • 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 Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from most network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly growing team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system is a crucial piece for enabling a firm's growth, and Progent follows this belief in our own system environment.
