Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of help desk service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will market your skills, but you should have basic certifications for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.
