Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client services, and following a strong results-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.
