I concur; using a free to open source CI solution would probably be
better for us, doubly if it integrates with github. I've heard good

I know some hardware labs people at Oracle, I could ask nicely if they
have a build farm that we could send jobs to.

I have a DevOps background, so I can do infrastructure stuff and code
stuff as well; between Rob and myself we could make reasonably sure
there is someone available at most times (I'm in the UK so we'd have
most of the clock covered).
