Job Description

Versent are an Australian-born product, platform and services company who exclusively partner with AWS to help enterprises think and act like startups. We do this by building highly available, highly scaleable technology platforms which enable our clients to deliver faster and more consistently than ever before.

We've scaled from 0 to over 350 in 5 years across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Singapore and Denver.

We have some of the best talent in Australia (I'm sure that is also globally) and due to ongoing client demand we need more exceptional team members to join the family that can work in small teams to deliver amazing results across all of the practices we have.

We are currently looking for more experienced Senior/Lead AWS Cloud Engineer(s). You'll be working on enterprise size projects with well known companies. You'll be put with an experienced team made up of engineers, developers and a Principal Consultant, all working together in a supportive, highly collaborative environment - never bodyshopped or on your own.

Role Responsibilities:

  • Provide AWS Cloud expertise for the cloud platform to ensure quality and reliable operations
  • Architect and design solutions required for both the platform and workloads
  • Provide input to develop longer term sustainable support and delivery of the platform and solutions on it
  • Actively take part in prioritising, planning, management and execution of work on the Cloud platform backlog
  • Provide input into the scope, design and participate in the execution of new workloads onto the platform


Your skills will ideally include:

  • A strong understanding of AWS - you will have worked with it in a commercial environment and know it well.
  • You will want to automate everything - never do the same thing twice! (Ideally you will have experience with Bash, PowerShell, Python, etc)
  • Platform automation scripting (Ansible, CFN, Lambda)
  • Firewalling policies (Palo Altos), and AWS NACLs
  • Proxy Technologies (Bluecoat, Squid, Netscaler)
  • AWS Platform knowledge (architecture and services)
  • Windows Automation (Powershell scripting)
  • Linux Automation (puppet/RPM)
  • Networking knowledge (routing/switching)
  • Windows AD/Directory Services
  • Developer Methodologies (Python, Github, Code Branching)
  • Authentication (SAML, API GW)
  • Enterprise Environment experience (ticketing, CMDB, change mgt)
  • Awareness and consideration of the impact of change activities
  • Ability to reverse engineer a system and understand the interdependencies between systems/components
  • Understanding of network connectivity
  • Experience working in a multi site global network
  • Good pragmatic trouble shooting approach
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • A strong desire to be part of a team in a fast paced, rapidly changing environment


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.

We do weekly internal tech meetups with food and drinks and pay for your AWS training and certifications, and other relevant certs (if it's something you want to do).

We have a variety of 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.

Versent Values and Behaviours

  • 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.
