Director Technology

Ali Raza

Ali Raza is Director of Technology at Code for Pakistan and describes himself as a quintessential civic hacker 
who loves solving civic tech problems with simple solutions. With over twelve years of experience building 
solutions and software architecture, Ali Raza works closely with government stakeholders to ensure their current 
and future planning requirements are effectively translated into technologies, standards and processes that will 
meet their needs, as well as the needs of his fellow citizens. Ali has worked closely with several provincial 
governments in Pakistan as the first manager of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Government Innovation 
Fellowship Program, and he has since then carefully cultivated a relationship at the federal level with Pakistan's 
National Institute of Health -- an enterprise responsible for improving health infrastructure in the country -- 
where he leads a pilot fellowship program that designs digital innovations in health that are 
community-centered. Prior to that, he worked on a project with Digital Pakistan and the initial Covid Response 
Team to design the country’s first covid dashboard. When he is not hacking, he likes to play mario kart with his 
daughters or build cool side projects
