Buildkite creates tools that keep software development teams happy and productive. We build cleanly designed, high quality tools with a focus on utility, scale, design, support, and open-source. We're lucky to work with some of the best engineering teams in the world, including Shopify, Airbnb, Basecamp, and more. 

Who We Are

Buildkite is a privately owned, profitable company that focuses on healthy, sustainable growth. We keep work to work hours, support fitting work around personal commitments, and encourage work life balance. We’re a globally distributed company, and all our work happens remotely. Work from your home office, a co-working space, or your local cat café.

Our Values

  • Transparency - We default to working in the open, allowing everyone to understand context and contribute.

  • Quality - We think developers need high-quality tools to build amazing products.

  • Diversity - We believe mono-cultures are bad, and a diversity of experience and thought leads to better solutions.

  • Independence - We are majority owned by employees, and funded by our local developer community.

  • Empathy - We believe empathy towards each other, and the community, creates a better environment for learning and change.

  • Collaboration - Our platform is a story that is always being written, and we encourage contributions from outside the Buildkite team.

  • Sustainability - We believe that great companies grow sustainably, maintain a healthy culture, and limit their impact on the environment.

Our Approach to Diversity and Inclusion

Buildkite is committed to strengthening and maintaining our diverse and inclusive culture. We offer flexible working hours so that you can work when it most suits you.

And we also provide everyone with:

Learning & development

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

  • $5,000 per year training and conference budget, for self-development and training

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 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.

  • $500 per year green commuting budget, for bicycle equipment and clothes, eletric/solar vehicle costs, or other green/public transport. 

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 yearly budget to spend on things like yoga, climbing, personal training, or a day at the zoo.

  • $2000 per year self-care budget, allowing for you to pay for gym, yoga, meditation or remedial massage.

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.
