Build tools for the best
software teams in the world.

About Us

Buildkite is a continuous delivery platform that helps development teams ship quality code, fast. Making developers happy and productive makes us happy, and we’re lucky to work closely with some of the best software teams in the world, including Airbnb, Shopify, Intercom, PagerDuty, and Basecamp.

We are an independently owned, profitable company that values sustainable growth, transparency and work-life balance. We’re currently a distributed team of twenty four, and work remotely from Vancouver, Perth, Sydney, Hobart, Adelaide, Tokyo, Oakland, Wellington, Berlin and Melbourne.

About The Role

Our VP of Marketing is based in PST, so we are looking for a contractor who’s happy to have their work day overlap to work closely with her.

We are looking for a part time writer to support case studies, blogs and other materials. We are looking for someone who is excited about DevOps and would be thrilled to work with members of our community. We expect the initial contract to be ~20 hours a week for 3 months.

Some things that will be useful to know about:

  • Experience with CI/CD solutions, especially Buildkite.
  • Understanding of Buildkite as a company.
  • Ability to influence the team and encourage participation in content strategy through videos, graphics and other media to bring their ideas to life.
  • Broad understanding of coding languages and how to read code samples generally.
  • Understanding of marketing principles and content marketing strategies.

What you’ll do:

  • Organize, create and work with marketing and engineering teams to post case studies.
  • Provide assistance to engineering teams for blogs: interview, write, edit, help to post.
  • Depending on your interests and background, write and post your own blog entries.
  • Ensure that content conforms to SEO best practices.

Why Apply?

Small team, global impact

We believe small companies are beautiful, and that small teams can achieve big things. This makes everyone on the team an important part of Buildkite.

Flexible work hours

We don’t keep set office hours, so you can shift your hours around life’s commitments and non-work activities. Take time out of work for exercise, family or whatever life throws at you.

Support and growth

In a small but growing company, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, and ship work that helps customers.

Work from anywhere

We’re a globally distributed, remote-first company, and all our work happens over chat and video calls. Work from your home office, a co-working space, or your local cat café.

Working at Buildkite has given me the freedom to grow and flourish in all aspects of my life, personally and professionally. I’m proud to be a part of such a passionate and supportive team.
