Mikey Dickerson

In 2013, Mikey Dickerson joined what became known as the “ad hoc” team, tasked with rescuing HealthCare.gov after its disastrous launch on October 1. In August 2014, President Obama established the United States Digital Service and tapped Mikey to serve as the Administrator to see if the strategy that succeeded at pulling Healthcare.gov out of the fire could be applied to other government problems. Prior to his service in government, Mikey worked in Site Reliability Engineering at Google from 2006 to 2014. He took a brief hiatus in 2008 and 2012 to work on the presidential campaigns, and in 2012 helped write software and oversee computer systems for several programs, including the critical “get out the vote” campaign.
