Before joining Google, he was with Microsoft Research, Princeton,[1] University of Arizona,[2] and Yale.[3] He has written many journal and conference papers and two books: A Retargetable C Compiler: Design and Implementation with Christopher Fraser, which describes lcc, a widely used compiler for Standard C,[4] and C Interfaces and Implementations: Techniques for Creating Reusable Software.[5]

Hanson is largely responsible for designing and implementing the "View as Slideshow" feature for PowerPoint attachments in Google's Gmail system.[6]

Hanson has one daughter born November 2, 1977 named Jennifer, who worked as a compiler in his second book.[7]
