Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and VMware.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class client care, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

Our focus on providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you must have basic certifications for us to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.
