Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States.

Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate.

For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with.
