Jonas Mårtensson is the chief executive officer of Mojang AB. He joined the company as vice president on October 2, 2013, when his twin brother and the CEO of Mojang, Carl Manneh, announced his recruitment.[1] With the acquisition of Mojang by Microsoft in November of 2014 and the subsequent retirement of his brother, he assumed the position of CEO.[2]

A few months back I had a casual conversation in the office kitchen talking about the insane amount of things going on at Mojang. I said something in the lines of 'I wish I could clone myself'. I remember Tobias mumbling something like 'I’ll look into that'. Yesterday Tobias came back to me and said he had something to show me. Introducing Mojang’s new Vice President: Jonas Mårtensson! Sometimes it’s just nice to be able to clone yourself… or hire your twin brother.
Carl Manneh[1]
