Based on your comments you are going to need more than just a normal 'build' system.

A build system creates the artifacts. But you are also looking for automated deployment.

And I suspect you might have distinct and perhaps different deployment targets (QA and prod) for example.

That complicates the process.

And it my experience doing that will require a mix of tools.

From your post I suspect you haven't even scoped out the actual use cases. Which should be your first step.

Let me provide some use case scenarios
- Allow a way to run unit tests (not on the developer machine.)
- Allow a way for a developer to run the full deployment on their machine, so they can test the full process.
- Allow a deployment to a QA box.
- Allow a deployment to a QA stack. Different than the above since it might include a cloud target.
- Allow a deployment to create (important) and deploy to a production clone target.
- Allow a full build, versioning to specified target. So a release candidate for QA or production.
- Allow a deployment to the Sales Demo box.
- Allow a deployment to a Professional Services box.
- Allow a hotfix build (start with a versioned build and apply a branch)

Your use cases presumably would be different and you might not want to build all of those now but you need to understand all of them now so you don't make any decisions that complicate or even preclude the scenarios you need.
