Plenty of people know the story of the Tech Surge that helped save Healthcare.gov, led by folks like Todd Park, Mikey Dickerson and Ryan Panchadsaram. But not as many people know that after the surge ended on March 31, 2014, there was still much work to be done. And fewer people know that a significant portion of that work was done by a handful of technologists who quit their private sector jobs to stick around and write code for the government. And they did it while living together in a McMansion on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
This is the story of Marketplace Lite (MPL), the team behind the team that together helped salvage Healthcare.gov from its many waterfall demons. And its told to us by one of those team members, Rohan Bhobe, who was so inspired by his experience that after his work at MPL was done, he remained committed to improving government technology and founded a Public Benefits Corporation called Nava.
Rohan told us his story earlier in the summer, and we’re excited to share it with you today on our tenth episode of the Public Impact Podcast.
