Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential.

Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for us to work with.
