Mikey Dickerson
Deputy CIO | Administrator, Federal Government | United States Digital Services Team

Mikey Dickerson worked in Site Reliability Engineering at Google from
2006 to 2014, modulo side trips to work on the Obama campaigns in 2008
and 2012. In 2013 he took one more leave of absence to join what became known as the “ad hoc” team that rescued healthcare.gov after its disastrous launch on October 1. He has been on a baffling through-the-looking-glass adventure ever since, including a move in August 2014 to become the Administrator of the newly created United States Digital Service.
