Background Jobs for Modern Apps

Use Taskless to run background jobs, schedule crons, and accept webhooks; all using your existing infrastructure.

The glue you need

A complete solution for managing background work

We bring together the backends that power modern day SaaS. Taskless' job queueing code makes it easy to run code in the background, respond to external webhooks, and even schedule jobs to a user's specific timezone.

Companies also trust Taskless to find job problems fast, retry failed jobs, manage connections between services, and more.

The right APIs

Ship faster with best-in-class libraries and tools

We're constantly improving our abstractions so that you and your team can focus on the product you're building and not the headaches of building, maintaining, debugging, scaling, and managing your job queueing systems.

Why Taskless

Technology designed for running fewer servers, without sacrificing what matters

End-to-End Encryption

It's not an afterthought, it's the default. Payloads sent through Taskless are symmetrically encrypted via AES256-GCM and signed with your shared secret.

Scale to Zero

When Taskless takes care of your job queue, you only need to cover the costs of the jobs you run. If you're not generating events, your cost is $0.

Intelligent Retries

If your service is overloaded, respond with a 503. We'll hold your jobs back until you've got the capacity to handle them.

Smart Search

Tell us metadata about your job, and it becomes searchable within Taskless with full boolean query support. No crawling through a redis ZSET to find matching jobs.
