Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers.

Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States.

Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to market.
