Jet Lu

Director, Digital DevOps, City of Baltimore

I like to think of myself as an enabler. I enjoy enabling teams, technology, and operating efficiency, and I am passionate about delivering solutions. With a software engineering background, my passion grew from a single contributor,  to leading teams, and making enterprise impact by transitioning organizations. I am super excited about Baltimore City’s Smart Cities Strategy and the progress we have made. With experience driving operational transformation and cloud adoption within companies of all sizes, it is an ineffable honor to do the same for our local community.

Our City Readiness Hub sessions offer a unique opportunity to hear from cities who are “in the trenches” on their journey to becoming a smart city. Featured Cities will highlight current challenges and will then receive targeted advice from Mentor Cities—other smart city practitioners who are further along the path to creating more livable, workable, and sustainable cities. Mentors have been carefully selected from those cities already designated as “Readiness Challenge winners and finalists” and paired with Featured Cities who are facing similar issues.
