About Us

Who we are

Based in Sydney, Australia, Starboard IT started as a conversation on how we could offer better, more personalised IT services. Starboard IT was founded by a team of IT professionals who realized that businesses deserved a quality IT experience without having to break the bank. Each have over 15 years’ experience in the implementation, support and security of IT network and server infrastructure, virtualisation and cloud technologies. We have worked in a multitude of areas on the business spectrum, so we understand the importance of providing outcome-focused services and solutions that work for your business.

Running a business ourselves we recognise the importance of combining the work-hard mindset and delivering outcomes with the human touch often not available with larger companies with bigger budgets.

What we do

Working in businesses of all sizes (ranging from start-ups to ASX200 listed multi-nationals), our team have connected, secured, migrated, supported and consolidated infrastructure and services for hundreds of companies and can help with all aspects of your organisation’s technology needs.
