As part of his responsibilities, Hanrahan will manage the Microsoft/Novell Interoperability Lab that Microsoft began staffing up earlier this year. Hanrahan began his Linux career at IBMs Linux Technology Center in Beaverton, Oregon, where he served as senior program manager in charge of software development and testing. In this position, he oversaw the work of many of IBMs leading Linux kernel developers and sub-maintainers. In September of 2003, he moved to the OSDL (Open Source Development Labs) where he served as director of Linux engineering.
