KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Cerner has 27,000 associates around the world and the company, based in the Kansas City area, has hundreds of jobs open locally.

"Think of us as sitting between health care and high tech. So we do systems that doctors and clinicians use to support patients," explained Bill Huffaker, Senior Vice President of Integrated Talent at Cerner. "We're very honored to play a role in the fight against the pandemic."

The 750 openings in the Kansas City area span a wide range of career opportunities.

Cerner has more than 80 open positions combined for Associate Learning Leaders and Federal Learning Specialists.

"Federal Learning Specialist position is a job that we actually recently created to accommodate VA needs that are specific to end-user training.
