Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will market your talents, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.
