Joe Ganley

I make software and sometimes other things.

I have been programming since I was 10 years old, and professionally since receiving my Ph.D. in CS in 1995.

I am Director of Engineering at Altana AI, where we are enabling trusted commerce by providing the single source of truth on the global supply chain.


  • I was the Chief Engineer on a large DoD project at Novetta
  • I was the VP of Engineering at a small authentication startup.
  • I ran the Federal Services division at Digital Reasoning, a data analytics company that focuses on extracting meaning from unstructured text.
  • I was the public-sector engineering lead for Orbital Insight, a geospatial analytics software startup.
  • Prior to all of that I had a 12-year career in software development for computer-aided design of integrated circuits.

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my wife and three daughters. I like to bicycle, hike, scuba dive, and ski, as well as many other things I'm less good at. Occasionally I find time for my own programming projects, for writing, and for making things.
