Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can join our team of help desk service specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, We have managed to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Contract Work for Certified Experts for
Windows, Macintosh, Linux-based, and Sun Technology

For over 20 years, Progent's computer professionals have provided low-cost and effective network consulting expertise for small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the United States.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from most network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and implemented information system is a pivotal piece for enabling any firm's growth, and we follow this philosophy in our own network infrastructure. Progent has built a zero-downtime virtual office network that enables Progent's staff consultants and authorized contractors to deliver fast and effective support, collaborate easily on complex jobs, and gain from professional and private maturity by acting as part of an exciting company ethos of personal drive and independence.
