Jeff Jones leads a multidisciplinary team focused on the design, development, and implementation of platforms that amplify the foundation’s impact.
Having spent his formative years living abroad in countries like Liberia, Mali, India, Japan, France, and Germany, he has seen first-hand the impact of inequality and the power of investing in global development challenges. Jeff joined the foundation in July 2016 to apply his passion for innovative, human-centered solutions to modernize IT platforms in service to the programmatic work of the foundation and overall philanthropic sector.
Throughout his career, which started in software engineering at Microsoft, Intel, and various start-up companies, Jeff learned to leverage technology to deliver meaningful results aligned with the most important business goals. Most recently, Jeff served as vice president of Technology at Expedia, Inc., leading the development of products and platforms that helped transform Egencia, the corporate travel brand of Expedia, from a local travel start-up to a global enterprise with operations in 65 countries.
