For example at Prezi, my main job was to speed up the 1-2hr jobs to run
them as fast as we can.

So I had a job which parsed all the tests and updated/creaed a matrix
configuration job  based on the specific test run-times. We had several
thousand tests. Before the whole test suite took 1-2hrs. After this "hack",
the test suit took around 90sec.

The downside was that sometimes a few jobs were running in a different
configuration - based on the previous run time - so they were shifted
+1/-1, so I had another job which collected all test results from this
matrix job, concatenated all of them into 1 test result and did the report.
