Welcome Message from Chief Information Officer (CIO), Jonathan Reichental, Ph.D.   

  Government Technology's Top 25 Honoree

On behalf of the Information Technology (IT) Department of the City of Palo Alto, I’d like to personally welcome you to our microsite. It is a great pleasure and honor to serve as your Chief Information Officer (CIO) and I am extremely proud of the valuable work that our City IT team performs each day for our community.

Technology plays an important role in the functioning of our City and each department. Our IT team is a highly motivated and bright group of professionals dedicated each day to delivering high quality, cost-effective services to City departments and the community. We are also committed to a multi-year, bold vision to become a leading digital city.  On this microsite you will learn about who we are, what we do, and what plans the City has for using innovative technology in the future.

Whatever reason brought you here, we hope you find the content informative and valuable. We are just getting started with publishing IT web content on our newly redesigned city web site, so expect much more in the weeks and months ahead. Please do come back often.

Whether you are looking for a technology career opportunity with the City, curious about the technology we use, have great ideas for us, or want to connect with us for any other reason, we would like to hear from you.
