We are agents of change.
The most important part of technology is people. We match outstanding technologists with federal leaders to improve the way our government builds, designs, and delivers services for the public.
Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) pairs industry's top technologists, designers, and strategists with federal changemakers to co-create bold solutions for public good. Embedded within agencies as “entrepreneurs in residence” for one year, our fellows bring the best of data science, design, engineering, product, and systems thinking into government.
We seek technologists who are passionate about solving complex challenges at the largest scale. Our fellows understand how to uncover problems, prototype solutions, and gather support from complex organizations. They join us from every region in the United States, with experience at big tech, startups, research labs, and more.
Your job as a PIF is to serve, build, and amplify. Success is measured by the number and quality of connections you have facilitated, by the number of useful and valuable products/services/things you have co-created, and the number of career staff that you have protected, empowered, and elevated.
Our fellows use their expertise to develop human-centered solutions to issues of national priority. Explore our recent work.
