The Mapistry Team

We’re shaping the future of industrial environmental compliance

Allie Janoch

Founder & CEO

Allie is a software engineer, bookworm, yogi, and chocoholic (sometimes all at the same time). After getting her B.S. in Computer Science from the U. of Maryland and her M.S. in Computer Science at U.C. Berkeley, Allie joined IQ Engines to work on image recognition.

After Yahoo acquired IQ Engines in 2013, Allie worked on integrating IQ Engines’ machine-learning algorithms into Flickr. But she soon grew restless, and began searching for a product she could be passionate about.

As an avid hiker, she saw environmental protection as a noble pursuit — and quickly discovered that helping businesses comply with environmental regulations was an underserved opportunity. She left Yahoo to found Mapistry in 2013 with Ryan.

Allie has published and presented on her computer vision and machine-learning research in multiple publications and conferences. She also holds a patent on Automatic Image Piling, and was named one of the Top 30 Under 30 by GreenBiz.

Founder & VP of Sales

Ryan is an engineer, carpenter, cook, and backpacker. He’s a California-licensed professional engineer with nationwide experience in stormwater program compliance for hundreds of industrial sites, including ready-mix concrete plants, metal recyclers, and bulk marine terminals.

He led the team that developed the New Jersey protocols for testing and evaluating stormwater treatment devices, and serves on the Water Environment Federation’s national committee for standardizing stormwater practices and products (STEPP). Ryan is a former member of the State of Virginia’s Stormwater BMP Clearinghouse Committee, which is responsible for establishing BMP pollutant removal efficiencies.

In 2015, Ryan was named one of the Top 20 Under 40 in the construction and civil engineering industry by Engineering News-Record, and was also named one of the rising stars in the stormwater industry by Stormwater Solutions. He holds an M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Maryland and a B.S. in Biology and Geology from Tufts University.
