Leader. Innovator.

Hi, I'm Jason Johns.

I lead diverse, highly effective, cross-functional teams who create innovative solutions that make folks' lives just a little bit easier.

For the past fifteen years I've worked in and with governments to transform the way real people interact with them digitally.

When I'm not working I run, bike, camp, travel and obsess over coffee and baseball.

Professional Achievements

Feel free to swipe through to learn more about how I've helped transform digital government.
