He joined the public sector in 2018 with the goal to digitally transform construction in Estonia.

Jaan is Head of Digital Construction at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications.

He is currently working on developing the “e-construction platform” which will provide the digital infrastructure for collaborative data sharing and integrate innovative services related to the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of built assets.
