The Jenkins server or CI (continuous integration) server is a tool that allows software developers to automate many of the common tasks (testing, compiling, etc.) associated with software development. It's become a widely used software development technology (133 thousand active installs, 1 million+ users), because of its ability to dramatically speed up development while assuring code quality.
