Head of Marketing

Build tools for the best
software teams in the world.

As the Head of Marketing at Buildkite you’ll help support and grow our vibrant developer community, and help shape the tools used by some of the best software teams in the world. You’ll be our first marketing hire, so you’ll have lots of autonomy and impact.

A typical day for a Head of Marketing might look like:

  • Developing new marketing and community strategies, and collaborating on them with leadership and the team.
  • Working with engineering and product teams to help spread the word to our community about product launches and changes.
  • Developing programs, content and campaigns to help our customers create the fastest developer workflows for their teams.
  • Identifying case studies and stories from our community, highlighting some of the most interesting ways in which Buildkite is helping developers build software.
  • Spending time with customers and the community, becoming an expert in messaging and positioning Buildkite.
  • Collaborating with our team and community on event sponsorship and speaking opportunities.
  • Building and managing scalable marketing campaigns across paid advertising, social media and content marketing.
  • Managing a guest content program from and for our community, helping teach technical topics, best practices, integrations, and new development tools.

This job is for you if you:

  • Are experienced with building product for developers in marketing, demand generation, or community.
  • Have a passion for marketing technical products.
  • Enjoy analysing data, and developing strategies to shift numbers in the right direction.
  • Have worked remotely, and value clear and open written and verbal communication. You should value empathy and kindness, and be able to articulate your ideas and feelings when writing or speaking.
  • Are self-motivated. You’re comfortable stepping into gaps in the planning, and taking initiative on what needs to be done and how to get it done.
  • Learn fast. You might not be an expert in everything we do initially, but you will quickly become an expert in some aspects, learn other bits you haven’t done before and generally dive into things even if they are new to you.

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.


Learning & development

Invest in your personal and professional development with a yearly budget of AU$5,000 to spend on travel, conferences, workshops, courses, and books.

Health cover

We’ll make sure that you and your family have access to comprehensive health and hospital cover, no matter which country you live in.

Parental leave

Take time out to set up a new family, with 6 months of paid leave if you’re the primary carer, and 3 months if you’re secondary. You can use it flexibly, change between primary and secondary, and take the same leave for a still birth. We also keep paying super/401k for 6 months if you take unpaid leave.

Home office & coworking

Set yourself up with a great work environment, either at home or in a co-working space, with a budget of AU$3000 for a desk and chair, and a new computer and phone every 24 months. We’ll also cover the cost of plants, art, or anything else you need to set yourself up with a beautiful and productive work environment.

Wellness & paid time off

Take care of your health and wellbeing away from the screen, with 6 weeks of paid leave per year, the ability to take time out of work for fitness, and a budget of AU$2000 per year to spend on things like yoga, climbing, personal training, or a day at the zoo.

Profit share & ownership

Share in the company’s success, and have a stake in what you’re helping to build. Everyone on the team receives a percentage share of the company profits each quarter, and an equity stake through our employee share program.

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.
