Pierce Hanley

Director of Software Development, SmartBrief

Washington, D.C.

Pierce has been developing software professionally since the days when websites had animated "Under Construction" graphics and highlighted their compatibility with Netscape Navigator 3.0. He has done front-end and back-end web application development for MITRE, Amazon.com, Boeing, and Red Hat, and continues to do so in his current role.

Pierce has twice been a participant in the National Day of Civic Hacking (a nationwide hackathon for developing software that improves access to public services), including a winning turn in the Northern Virginia group in 2013: joining two others in developing a mobile site that provides maps to farmers' markets that accept SNAP (food stamp) benefits in order to improve access to fresh food for lower-income families.

Pierce is passionate about code, information, and the role of the web in expanding our access to both.
