Digital Services Expert, Office of the Federal Chief Information Officer, The White House


Matthew Bailey is a technology strategist and organizer working at the intersection of open government, civic engagement, and public policy. A passionate generalist, his work has ranged from information security to open data and from crowdfunding to service design. As a cofounder of Code for DC, he helps build the capacity of DC’s technology community for social good. By day, he serves at the White House Office of the Chief Information Officer as a digital services expert, focusing on all the open things in a policy context—including the recently issued federal source code policy.
