A Life-Changing Place to Work

Home / About / Careers

We live up to our promise of being member driven and technology focused each and every day at NRTC. It starts with a staff of experts dedicated to finding technologies that benefit our members. Because our experts have a thorough understanding of rural electric and telecom providers, they add to our advanced solutions set only those technologies that address the unique challenges of serving rural communities.


NRTC provides solutions that help our 1,500 electric and telephone members bring all the advantages of today’s evolving technology to rural America. NRTC’s solutions are developed specifically to meet the needs of rural utilities and their customers, and include integrated smart grid solutions, advanced metering networks, next-generation energy, grid intelligence, broadband, managed services, mobile and video.

We are a dynamic, growing cooperative with more than 800 employees operating out of eight office locations. We are looking to add experienced staff to our growing company to help our rural cooperative members develop their technology. Our approach is to educate and support our members as we work with them through a consultative process.

growth and development

At NRTC, we pride ourselves in promoting from within and developing careers through our mentorship, Educational Assistance programs, NRTC University webinars, and a learning management platform. Most of our positions are posted internally first, where we give our existing employees the opportunity to elevate their careers. NRTC also provides a mentorship program that helps employees find experienced mentors who can lead them on their professional journeys. Our educational assistance program offers an annual reimbursement of up to $5,250 per calendar year for educational costs to promote professional growth with continued education outside of NRTC. Monthly NRTC University webinars are hosted to educate our employees on other business units and departments. NRTC provides a robust learning management platform including thousands of courses for continued self-education.  

transparent leadership

Our Executive and Senior Leadership Teams provide frequent updates with our quarterly “All Hands Meetings” both company-wide and within each one of our four business units. These meetings consist of important company updates, candid financial information, employee milestones, Employee Excellence Awards, special guests, IDEA updates and on-the-spot employee Q&A. To help encourage open communication, feedback and discussions, NRTC leadership also has an “open door policy,” and conducts numerous employee surveys which allows our employees to help shape the culture and future of NRTC.
