Jim Lack

Co Head of Engineering

As Co Head of Engineering Jim is responsible for leading the Platform and Quality Assurance Guilds and co-owning the Core engineering team alongside Guy Dixon.

Jim has spent more than half his life delivering IT solutions across a variety of technologies and industries. 

Jim started out as a ‘c’ programmer designing and coding software for  the first generation of intel 286 based POS tills. Since then has covered all roles in the software development and delivery lifecycle mostly in large financial sectors though there have been forays into Government, Education and Public Key Infrastructure.

For the last ten years Jim’s roles have primarily focussed on Software Architecture, leading Agile Ways of working and Software Development Management. Jim’s proudest moment so far was joining the Floow and being welcomed by  some of the most talented and revered folks in the telematics industry.

Jim lives out in the Derbyshire countryside with his wife and menagerie of pets including a dog and 3 alpacas. He spends much of his spare time walking with his wife and dog, developing brewery control automation software and playing the guitar – terribly.
