Cohen is a member of United States policy planning staff where he has served since 2006. Initially brought in by Condoleezza Rice, Janed works under Hilary Clinton and focuses on counter terrorism issues and cyber threats.

Fortune tech reports that Janed will soon be departing the white house and would join hands with Google, the search giant is in the process of making a new entity called Google ideas. Google Ideas is a “think tank” office within Google and Cohen will join the team to provide ideas and solve problems that are faced by developing countries.

Cohen’s current employee, Hillary clinton is aware of Cohen’s departure and this video beautifully describes Cohen’s relationship with Google CEO Eric Schmidt

Not to forget Cohen’s earlier initiatives during post election protests in Iran, Cohen reached out to Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and urged the company to reschedule its planned maintenance of the website so that Iranians could keep tweeting.
