Guy joined us in January as our new lead software engineer, bringing with him 15 years of experience. He happens to be the guy who designed the targeting algorithms for those annoying pop-up ads on streaming sites - he sends his apologies.
Before he did that, he spent a long period developing hardware and software for energy management systems. There are now thousands of devices all over the UK and Europe that he designed and wrote the code for, including every BT phone exchange.

Guy’s role at FLG
As our lead software engineer, Guy is responsible for managing our development team, keeping our systems running, providing technical direction for new product developments, and writing lots and lots of code.
So far, his focus has been on platform modernisation projects.
Life outside of FLG
Outside of work, Guy runs a busy household with his 3 kids, 3 chickens and 2 cats. Whenever he has any free time, he enjoys going for walks and writing even more code for a side project.
Before lockdown, he skipped the toilet roll panic buying and got his nose pierced instead – he’s got his priorities just right! Since then he’s had anything from sophisticated jazz to happy hardcore on his playlist, and has grown a vast amount of hair on his head.
Welcome to the team, Guy Thouret!
