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.

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.
