You might want to look into CloudCannon (http://cloudcannon.com/). It's still an early product, but the idea is pretty cool. You auth CloudCannon to your Jekyll GitHub project and it exposes a Web GUI that allows content editors to do CRUD operations. CloudCannon then commits those changes directly to the repo. Then a GitHub webhook with something like Travis CI can build the site and deploy the changes.

This is great because it allows engineers to maintain a simple static website and content editors can use a web based GUI that is kind of like WordPress (though CloudCannon has a long way to go on the usability of its web GUI). We used CloudCannon at Hillary for America for a small project. It ended up not being the right tool for the job, but I definitely think there is a use case for CloudCannon and the team behind it is super open to feedback and iteration.
