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.
