• End-to-end solutions, with seamless integration between content design, production,     distribution and ongoing facilitation

Lobster Ink is driven by a dynamic and diverse team, inspired by excellence, innovation and continuous improvement.

Our emphasis on quality and innovation can be evidenced by the cutting edge implementation of the .NET infrastructure underpinning the ground-up redesign of our new learning platform. Using technologies like Angular,  Azure infrastructure and GraphQL, we are forging a new path in creating a scalable, dynamic platform built for rapid development. We work closely with Microsoft engineers to get the most out of Azure.
