Two things:

* I'm not really sure what "deploy keys" are.

  Do you mean your build server's front-end software is able to generate
  a pair of SSH keys for you, associate the public key with some repos
  hosted there, then make it possible for you to obtain the private
  SSH key of that pair and then *use it to push stuff to those repos.*

  That's important because we need to weed irrelevant information
  from your question out to get to the gist of it.  My gut feeling is
  that you just basically want to know how to make specific SSH key
  be used to push stuff to a remote repo, and that's all there is
  to it.  So I'd like to make sure my guess is correct.

  Is my definition correct?

* What OS are you using?
  I assume it's not Linux-based, and if yes, the question is
  how did you obtain Git to install there?

  Again, that's important because on a Linux-based system obtaining Git
  is as trivial as installing a package, and "the rest" (like the
  way Git interacts with SSH) is in 99% the same across different
  operating systems.  In case of Windows, things get trickier.
