We empower your teams

Our approach

We are technology consultants and software developers specialising in Digital Platforms & Apps, AWS Cloud Solutions, Cloud Managed Services, and more.

By immersing ourselves in your environment and partnering with your team, we empower you to leverage the cloud – with practical, high-value solutions.

We don’t assume that a ‘lift and shift’ approach will always deliver optimal outcomes. And we don’t rebuild it all, just for the sake of it.

Disciplined and focused, our team creates solutions using the cloud and your existing assets to deliver consistent business impact and long-term flexibility.

We also take the time to understand your environment intimately so we can guide you down the most cost-effective, future-proof path. It’s all about helping you achieve tangible, lasting impact.

Our values drive our approach

People first

We love technology and its many powerful possibilities. But for us, people come first.

That’s why we never lose sight of our underlying goal: to serve human needs through the systems and solutions we craft.

How do we do it? Through our intimate understanding of the way technology can enable your people – and delight your customers.

And by hiring the right talent to work with you, our people-led culture is always front and centre.

Pragmatic delivery

When it comes to technology, change is a certainty. But how you respond is firmly in your control.

Upholding a disciplined and pragmatic approach, we don’t recommend change for change’s sake. And we never over-service your business.

We only rewrite where we should. And we only rebuild when we should.

By prioritising reality over theory, we deliver business outcomes with best-fit solutions.

Sharing deep expertise

We don’t partner with you to prove our rich expertise. We partner with you to share it.

Through our leadership and support, we’ll empower your people with deep tech and business process knowledge.

It’s the only way to achieve optimal business outcomes that bring you value over the long term.

Integrity above all

At Shine, integrity is more than a platitude. It’s ingrained in all we do.

We see every interaction as an opportunity to build trust. For us, that means honouring our word and staying true to our values – no matter what challenges this may bring.

Through our genuine commitment and true accountability, your deadlines, budgets and deliverables will be in safe hands.

Supporting community

Making a positive contribution to the wider community.
Supporting diversity in tech

As part of our dedication to philanthropy and fostering diversity in Australia’s tech scene, Shine has introduced the Illuminate program to support tech beginners looking to transition into software engineering.

We’re offering full scholarships to selected applicants for General Assembly’s 3-month “Software Engineering Immersive” and Holberton’s 9-month “Foundations of Software Engineering.” Recipients will also receive mentorship and invitations to key industry events and Shine’s Guild meetups.

Supporting women

The Queen’s Fund is a charitable organisation that supports women to increase their self-worth, skills and knowledge through short-term emergency relief and financial support, and grants for education and rebuilding lives.

Shine has donated software development services to create secure web applications that streamline requests and enhance control of sensitive information.

Social & Environmental Responsibility

As a software engineering company that influences the practices of our clients, we feel it’s important to pursue opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint and that of our clients.

At Shine, that means constantly pursuing efficiency in using computing resources and implementing a carbon-neutral policy that fully offsets our Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions.

As a people-first business, we treat everyone with respect, fairness and equity. Shine proudly endorses the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and United Nations Global Compact.
