Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware.

So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts".

The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to market.

In fact, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving.
