About

Hi, I’m Gregory. First-generation American who builds software for city government and non-profits. 

Gregory Johnson is a Technical Product Manager with 7 years of experience in the enterprise software space specializing in Health Information Technology and Civic Technology. He works the Microsoft TechSpark team where he leads the Civic Innovation Program. He lead the largest civic technology developer community Code for Miami. He helps organizations deliver digital services with small agile team through his company EveryLedger

Gregory started off in software quality assurance handling automated testing and unit testing. He then got into product development to build digital services and manage the software development of revenue-generating products. Whether it’s a website, cloud application, API or enterprise software solution he has experience working with teams to build it specifically leveraging cloud computing.

Gregory’s interest in using technology and design to improve the broken government system grew out of his experience informing his South Florida community about the Affordable Care Act while serving as a neighborhood team leader for the 2012 Presidential campaign. That’s where he learned first-hand about the broken health care system and saw opportunities to apply technology and design to improve the system. But Gregory’s passion for technology started long before 2012. As a kid, he built and designed online forums. As a teenager, he spent hours in coworking spaces networking in the South Florida Technology community.

I help business scale through use of technology focused on improving customer experience.

Gregory has received various awards and recognition for his efforts to use technology as a tool to build solutions that improve the American healthcare system. In 2019, he was a Code for America Community Fellow. In 2017, he was selected as a New Profit – Millennial Impact Fellow recipient. In 2015, Miami Caribbean Code awarded him, Young Innovator of the Year, the Casimiro Global Foundation awarded him Social Entrepreneur of the Year.
