January 2015 — Present

StateScoop covers the intersection between state and local governments and technology, primarily through interacting with the c-suite — the chief (insert phrase here) officer for state technology departments. 

In January 2015, Jake started as a staff reporter for StateScoop — after transitioning from the same role on SNG's federal publication. In September 2015, Jake was promoted to be the Manager of Strategic Initiatives where he worked on special projects, business development and content strategy. In the role, Jake forged strategic partnerships with several trade groups, nonprofits and associations and worked with SNG leadership and an editorial team to grow the publication. In his first half year on the job, StateScoop's traffic increased by more than 34 percent. 

In addition, in 2016, Jake regularly spoke publicly on behalf of StateScoop and moderated panels across the industry. He also launched StateScoop's first regular podcast series concentrating on the Top 10 priorities of state chief information officers.
