We use Buildbot. It has worked very well, and we use it for some other
automation tasks besides software builds. It builds and tests software
from our local GitLab instance. Builds are mostly done in Docker
containers, though for macOS and Windows we run the Buildbot workers
on bare metal.

Downside is it's configured using Python and the configuration takes
some getting used to when setting it up for the first time (but it's
very well designed and worth learning). The upside is it's Python :)
so it's *very* flexible. Downside is also that the config is central
and not kept with the repos (though there is a project to support
Travis-style in-repo config).
