Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join our staff of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise.
