Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to join our team of help desk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you must have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through.
