Meet Luke, Our Software Development Lead

Meet the team Luke Swanton (1)

Meet our Software Development Lead, Luke. With a passion for all things tech, Luke joined us almost five years ago. Starting as a junior software developer, he has expanded his knowledge and now leads our close knit team of developers.

With his role less customer focused we thought it would be lovely to ask some questions so you can truly get to know one of the key faces behind our company!

What movie can you watch over and over again?     

Without a doubt the Polar Express! It ticks all the boxes for the perfect Christmas film plus it has Tom Hanks in it, what’s not to love?

What topping would you put on your ideal pizza?

First off pizza is amazing with any topping, except pineapple, I don’t trust those who like pineapple on pizza. The sweet and salty combo is just completely wrong in my opinion (that even includes salted caramel.)

It’s hard to narrow down to one ideal topping so I’d just have to say any meats, salami, ground beef, sausages, you name it, I want it on my pizza.

What’s your favourite thing to eat at Christmas?

That’s an impossible question to answer, everything served at Christmas is amazing! I am partial to pigs in blankets but also roast potatoes are a classic. I love all of it and can’t pick a favourite, however I could give the brussels sprouts a miss.

Would you rather it be winter or summer all year round?

That’s easy, winter! It’s the best season in my opinion, I love Christmas and all the festivities that come with it. Plus, I hate how hot summer can be nowadays.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why?

If I could be any animal, I’d pick a dog. They’re smart creatures who find fun in everything they do plus they live the life of luxury at home with their owners. I almost said a cat, but I think dogs are way less self-centred!

What’s your favourite tv show?

It changes often but I’d probably say Dexter at the moment, I love cop shows in general but following round the person they’re looking for is a great twist which I love. Ask me in a month and maybe my answer will have changed again.

What’s your guilty pleasure song?

I’m not sure it’s so much a guilty pleasure song now as One Republic have gotten pretty popular since Top Gun but it’s Secret by One Republic. It was in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice with Nicolas Cage and really got my attention, after watching that film it’s a song I’ll never grow sick of.

And lastly why do you enjoy working at DQ global?

Since I’ve joined DQ Global it’s been great to see the company expand with more employees. I also like that no two days are the same and I get to work with new technologies and an array of clients.
