More Information Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul.
