Buildkite is the fastest, most reliable, secure way to deploy and test code at any scale. 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 a privately held company that values sustainable growth, transparency, and work-life balance. We’re currently a distributed team of twenty-six and work remotely from Seattle, Vancouver, Perth, Sydney, Hobart, Adelaide, Tokyo, Oakland, Wellington, Berlin, and Melbourne.
We default to working in the open, allowing everyone to understand context and contribute. We’re open about both our strengths and weaknesses.
We think developers need high-quality tools to build amazing products. We take the time to create things with high levels of design, utility, and support.
We believe diversity of experience and thought leads to better solutions and creates more sustainable cultures. The tools we build must be accessible to people of all abilities and backgrounds.
We are majority-owned by employees, and funded by our local developer community. We own our destiny and build long term relationships with our customers.
We believe empathy towards each other, customers, and the community, creates the best environment for learning, change, and inclusivity.
Our platform is a story that is always being written, and we encourage contributions from outside the Buildkite team. We actively support and collaborate with other organizations to better our industry, and the world.
We believe that great companies grow sustainably, respect life outside work, maintain a healthy culture, and limit their impact on the environment.
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.
We’ll make sure that you and your family have access to comprehensive health and hospital cover, no matter which country you live in.
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 stillbirth. 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.
