What KANREN is all about

KANREN is a non-profit (501(c)(3)), membership consortium of Kansas education institutions and other community anchors. Our membership includes all state universities as our key anchors members, K–12 schools, community colleges, private colleges and universities, public libraries, healthcare, local and county government as well as other community anchor institutions. KANREN’s primary mission is to provide a statewide data network and associated services, education and community tailored specifically to the needs of our unique membership organizations.

The KANREN staff are a small, but dedicated group who are committed to providing premium services to our membership. KANREN offers a stellar benefits package including generous paid time off, 100% individual healthcare and life insurance premiums paid (supplemental policies and additional family members are covered under our group but require employee contribution), as well as flexible working arrangements. Professional development and educational opportunities may be paid for or subsidized when they are directly applicable to the success of our staff and consortium.

Current Employment Opportunities

In pursuing its mission to support the research and education community through advanced data-networking capabilities, KANREN employs highly motivated and skilled professionals in a variety of roles. KANREN’s member institutions are composed of a diverse range of institutions. KANREN’s backbone and aggregation solutions must efficiently meet the needs of the largest university High Performance Computing (HPC) nodes and the smallest rural school districts, libraries, and municipalities. Working for a charitable nonprofit is a rewarding experience that offers employees the opportunity to work with advanced technologies in complex environments. After working at KANREN, our experts have gone on to support the likes of Internet2, national laboratories, and networking initiatives in the federal government.
