Scheduled background jobs that meets any scale and reliablity demands.

Cron is out, background jobs
finally got some love.

Fully managed cloud hosted service to schedule, manage and scale your background (cron) jobs written in any language without fiddling with servers. Simply deploy youe code, schedule and monitor your jobs on our infrastructure.

Enterprise grade platform to run background jobs

  • Any language

    NodeChef will build your code written in your language of choice and make them ready to be scheduled from the dashboard to run as jobs. Simply upload your code from the dashboard, the NodeChef CLI or connect your repository from GitHub, GitLab, or BitBucket to build.

  • Powerful Scheduling

    Schedule jobs from the dashboard to execute at any time, at custom repetitions through out the day and even execute the same job in parallel. You can schedule jobs with custom parameters and a custom start command allowing you to use a monolithic codebase if required.

  • Monitoring

    The dashboard allows you to view logs for each execution both in real time and for previous execution. CPU and memory usage of the job executor is also available to provide you with greater insights into the execution and performance of your jobs. Easily kill and run jobs on demand from the dashboard.

  • Docker Containers

    Each background job is scheduled and executed in a secure and fully isolated application container. You can run your jobs with as many containers in parallel for performance gains when needed.

  • GUI management

    Our dashboard turns you into an expert. No experience with managing servers and running production code is required, simply point and click to schedule and monitor your jobs.

  • Complete visibility

    From the dashboard, you can easily see which of your jobs are failing, taking too long to complete, kill and start jobs on demand and even set alerts when your jobs fail. Your background jobs now have first class treatment in the cloud.

  • Guaranteed execution

    No flakiness here, once scheduled, NodeChef guarantees your jobs will run exactly at the specified time or within a few seconds of the time it was scheduled.

  • Bare metal performance

    Your jobs run on bare metal servers with local SSD for the best performance. Containers are orchestrated with precision to ensure all your jobs have their fair share of CPU to perform well.

  • Team collaboration

    Your entire team has access to one dashboard to work with, each team member could schedule their own jobs and also by default have access to jobs created by other team members.
