Our mission


At CircleCI, we want to empower all developers everywhere to do their best work. We provide not just the tools to support them, but also the knowledge they need to succeed and grow through educational, actionable, and opinionated content.

To write successful content for CircleCI’s blog, you’ll need to be a person who likes to dig deep, predict reader questions and provide the answers, and be good at explaining not just how to do something, but why you recommend doing it that way.

Frequently Asked Questions


We are always interested in sharing and promoting content that supports our mission of advancing the understanding of engineering productivity. If you have a piece you think would be a good fit for our audience of developers and technical leaders, please email gillian@circleci.com to talk about syndication. At this time we are only paying for original content not published elsewhere.


We’d love to chat about new partnerships and co-marketing opportunities. Reach out to gillian@circleci.com. Our Guest Writer Program and associated payments are reserved for works coming from individual contributors, not from partners.
