About Jenkins

The leading open source automation server, Jenkins provides hundreds of plugins to support building, deploying and automating any project.

Blurb

Jenkins is the leading open source automation server supported by a large and growing community of developers, testers, designers and other people interested in continuous integration, continuous delivery and modern software delivery practices. Built on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), it provides more than 1,500 plugins that extend Jenkins to automate with practically any technology software delivery teams use. In 2019, Jenkins surpassed 200,000 known installations making it the most widely deployed automation server.

Figure 1. Jenkins

On our Logo page we have documented some versions of our logo, including the color palette our branding uses. Our logos can be downloaded in a number of sizes, or as vector graphics, from here. Please do not use any of our "fun logo" variations like Ninja or Superhero Jenkins in publications.

When embedding our logo in an article, we prefer the logo.png (see Figure 1) to be used over the headshot.png image.

If you have any questions about artwork, please ask one of the Press Contacts.
