It sounds like you're on the right track.

You're correct that the "simple cron job"
approach has a drawback that some commits may go untested if a bunch of
changes are pushed in rapid succession.

Maybe Bitbucket webhooks would work for you? The idea here is that
Bitbucket notifies some web service that you maintain whenever there's
relevant changes to your repository. With this information you could launch
a CTest job to build & test the new commit.
