About Buildkite

We are building a platform for running fast, secure and scalable continuous integration pipelines. Our focus is building quality tools to help developers ship software more efficiently. 

We are a distributed company and we deeply care about our team. We do not keep set office hours and we are spread over ~7 timezones. 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.

  • 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.
