Ishtiaque Khaled

Senior Engineer

I’m passionate about using my skills to ensure the most vulnerable in society are taken care of.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Lightyear Health, I build, fix, and design things. Each feature created or bug squashed means someone, somewhere is getting slightly better care than they would otherwise.

I graduated from the University of Toronto with a double major in Neuroscience and Computer Science. Still being (relatively) young in the industry, I try to take every opportunity available to hone my skills and create a better world.

Outside of work, I love new — new food, new media, new experiences, and so on. Whether it’s jumping out of a plane, reading a new book, or cooking a new lasagna recipe, I’ll be excitedly looking for it.
