Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our staff of help desk service specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to market. If you are strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution.

Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.
