We are some of the best software developers, cloud architects, ux consultants and operations engineers in the business. We are smart, hardworking and handsome.

We always go the extra mile to help our customers achieve the impossible.

Our Story

Tired of traditional approaches to consulting & delivery in the market, Mechanical Rock opened in Perth in 2014 and quickly established a solid client base which includes BankwestBHPAFGVirtual Gaming Worlds and Woodside. Our mission is to deliver better software, faster while helping our clients transform the way they deliver.

Our way of working is based on DevOps, modern code-driven infrastructure and test first development. Put your end users / customer’s needs first as we help you to automate the “heavy lifting” and get the best value the cloud has to offer.

We invest heavily in our people and our trusted partnerships which is why we only work with the best. We are an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Consulting Partner, Google Cloud Platform Partners and have a number of other key partnerships  including Snowflake and Sumo Logic, and are Australia’s only Cucumber partner.

Every year we organise the Latency conference, Perth’s only conference dedicated to building secure, high performing cloud native applications.

Our Approach

DevOps is at the heart of everything we do and it is the foundation which enables our clients to win. We make software development fast, repeatable and efficient by removing the constraints on your solution delivery through continuous delivery and infrastructure-as-code. We give you confidence to deliver value faster, bring visibility into the operation of your software, and make operations and security a proactive part of the software development lifecycle.

Our DevOps philosophy delivers better software, faster through:

  • Everything-as-Code under configuration management, including immutable infrastructure validated via Behaviour Driven Infrastructure (BDI)
  • Test First Development, exemplified by Test Driven Development (TDD) and Behaviour Driven Development (BDD)
  • Continuous Build via deployment pipelines, including automated testing at the unit and scenario level.
  • Continuous Operations including monitoring and alerting, auto remediation and optimisation
  • Transparency of information, and active collaboration across teams, throughout the process
