Senior AWS Devops Engineer - 6 month contract

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.

Due to client demand, we're expanding into Canberra and are looking for a couple of seasoned AWS Engineers to join the team! You'll be working closely with our Principal Consultant who is already based in Canberra on a range of projects, focused on building and automating AWS infrastructure. This is an opportunity to join the at the start of our Canberra growth and be an integral part of helping us to build the team.

You must already have NV1 clearance to be eligible for this role.


What we ideally need you to know:

  • 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)
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines
  • Know the DevOps principles well
  • 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, host game nights and LAN parties as well as pay for training, certifications and conferences.

We embrace the notion of Family at Versent, working together to achieve outstanding success. We have monthly social events to bring everyone together, often supporting charity initiatives such as TourXOz and RUOK Day. We're supportive of bringing both kids and dogs into the office (which makes it a bit more lively!) and have a flexible work environment.


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.
