I use Buildkite because it's the only CI system I've found that strikes a reasonable balance between flexibility and usability. You can accomplish pretty much any standard CI task out of the box with a simple, easy to understand interface and sane defaults, while the hooks and pipeline systems offer enough configurability to rival Jenkins - but without the misery that using Jenkins is certain to entail.
I use Buildkite because it balances enormous flexibility with easy out of the box configuration. We use it for everything from automating builds (which involves running huge test suites where the parallel builds feature is invaluable) to doing nightly batch jobs for our production environment. Super flexible, amazing tool
Buildkite provides testing of the Rails application via a Docker container with Docker Compose. The Buildkite Agent runs on a small Digital Ocean droplet, runs the integration and model tests, and marks the GitHub commit for Heroku to perform their auto-deployments once the build is green.
