From the early days of his career as a developer, Ali realized the incredible benefits that open source frameworks and libraries can bring to the world. He personally benefitted from these advantages, but never had the chance to pass them onto his community. Here at Lisk, he finally has the ability to contribute, as the Lisk platform encourages people to work together to build a better, decentralized world. Prior to joining Lisk, Ali lived and worked in Tehran. In his most recent stint, he worked on the top of a 2240 meter tall mountain; he would carry his bike up every day and ride back down at the end of the work day. Ali holds a Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications Engineering from University of Sistan in Iran.
