Job Description

Quick intro to Versent (with more info at the end) - Versent are an Australian born technology company, focused helping enterprises think and act like startups by building highly available and scaleable technology platforms. We specialise in cloud-native solutions built on AWS, whether that be infrastructure, application, security or (what it normally is) - all of the above! We're ~5 years old and in that time we've scaled to over 300 people across Australia (mainly Sydney and Melbourne, with offices in Perth and Brisbane too), as well as Singapore and Denver in the US.

Our Perth office is about to hit a big growth phase and with that, we're looking for another Principal Consultant to join the family! You'll be joining an experienced Versent team who can help bring you up to speed on what we do and how we do it, as well as embed you with a client we have a strong relationship with.

Principal Consultants at Versent wear three main hats - running a delivery team, stakeholder engagement and technical oversight. You're essentially the conduit between the client and the engineering team, ensuring we're all working towards the same goal and clearing blockers on both sides.


Your Experience:

  • You'll have deep experience in either infrastructure or application development, with experience both designing and implementing solutions
  • Have lead teams before following a hybrid Agile methodology.
  • Experience with AWS is a must, you don't need to know everything but need to be comfortable talking about it and know the core services.
  • A solid understanding of DevOps, comfortable talking about automation, pipelines and the culture shift required
  • A natural ability to influence and present across business and technical teams - pulling together meaningful transformational outcomes
  • The resilience required to deal with influences and blockers that come from dealing with large enterprises
  • Commercial acumen for developing proposals, statements of work or similar.


At the core of what we do, we're an engineering company. We value our people more than commercials and put culture at the centre of everything. The team in Perth will be growing radically over the next 6-12 months and you'll be part of that growth, mirroring the success we've had in Sydney and Melbourne.

We do weekly internal tech meetups with food and drinks, host game nights, organise Hackathons, pay for your AWS training and certifications, and other relevant certs (if it's something you want to do). We have many social events, often supporting charity initiatives such as TourXOz and RUOK Day. We also have family functions such as lawn bowls, company picnics etc. We have a paid parental leave program.

We embrace the notion of Versent as a Family, working together to achieve outstanding success. We have flexible working hours and a culture based on respect, trust and collaboration.


You know, work doesn't have to feel like work. In fact, we don't want it to. That's why we've cultivated an environment based on creativity. Because when people who care about their craft are given the freedom to explore possibilities without restriction, amazing things can happen.


No cool cliques, just hard-working humans generating ideas and devising solutions in a creative, collaborative work space. Professional but not corporate, we believe success is achieved through strong leadership (without interference from middle-management) and an autonomous working environment backed by the moral support of like-minded peers. This is a highly collaborative, supportive environment.


  • People: We believe in a positive team with family spirit, because life is to short for anything else.
  • Customer: We create remarkable experiences for customers and treat them as you would wish to be treated.
  • Quality: Be Artisans who care for their craft and lead change through continuous improvement.
  • Reliability: Do what we say we will do when we say we will do it, every time.
  • Transparency: Full disclosure, integrity and honesty in all things.
  • Reciprocate: Give back and assist as much as possible, whenever possible.
