Hamran has been working as a prosecutor since 2000. Between 2003 and 2007 he served at the General Prosecutor's Office and at the Special Prosecutor's Office in Bratislava. He was appointed to the Eurojust post in The Hague on September 7, 2007, after then-justice minister Štefan Harabin dismissed one of his opponents, Peter Paluda, from the job.
