Details About Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of help desk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and following a strong results-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can market your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.
