Agility architect. Kunin helped bring the open-source repository service GitHub Enterprise into the federal government back in 2011, and he spent 2015 pushing digital innovation forward. He was active in cybersecurity discussions with the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team after the Office of Personnel Management breach and in the subsequent promulgation of best security practices. He evangelized DevOps as he guided the development of the innovation platform Cloud.gov and 18F's agile delivery services marketplace. He also helped promote a growing trend in federal procurement: making vendors show, not just tell, how their solutions will meet agencies' needs.
