Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and VMware.
