Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to join Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.
