Inngest Raises $3M Seed

Effortless serverless queues,
background jobs, and workflows

Easily develop serverless workflows in your current codebase, without any new infrastructure. Using Inngest, your entire team can ship reliable products.

Trusted by teams all over the world

Ship in hours, not weeks

Build everything from simple tasks to long-lived workflows using our SDK. With Inngest, there is zero infrastructure to set up - just write code.

* On average, teams ship their first Inngest function to production in 4 hrs and 44 minutes.

Any codebase, zero infrastructure

Add our SDK to your existing project to start building in minutes. Inngest works with all of your favorite frameworks, without any infrastructure.

Declarative jobs & workflows

Write your background jobs in just a few lines of code. Skip all boilerplate, and never define queues or state again.

Simple primitives, infinite possibilities

Learn our SDK in minutes, not weeks, to build even the most complex workflows faster than ever before.

2  { id: "handle-payments" },
3  { event: "api/invoice.created" },
4  async ({ event, step }) => {
5    // Wait until the next billing date
6    await step.sleepUntil("wait-for-billing-date",;
8    // Steps automatically retry on error, and only run
9    // once on success - automatically, with no work.
10    const charge = await"charge", async () => {
11      return await stripe.charges.create({
12        amount:,
13      });
14    });
16    await"update-db", async () => {
17      await db.payments.upsert(charge);
18    });
20    await"send-receipt", async () => {
21      await resend.emails.send({
22        to:,
23        subject: "Your receipt for Inngest",
24      });
25    });
26  }

We’ve built the hard stuff for you

Inngest gives you everything you need with sensible defaults.

Ship reliable code

All functions are retried automatically. Manage concurrency, rate limiting and backoffs in code within your function.

Powerful scheduling

Enqueue future work, sleep for months, and dynamically cancel jobs without managing job state or hacking APIs together.

Replay functions at any time

Forget the dead letter queue. Replay functions that have failed, or replay functions in your local environment to debug issues easier than ever before.

We built all the features that you need to build powerful applications without having to re-invent the wheel.

Background Jobs

Out of the critical path

Ensure your API is fast by running your code, asynchronously, in the background.

No queues or workers required

Serverless background jobs mean you don’t need to set up queues or long-running workers.

1import { sendSMS } from "../twilioUtils";
2import { inngest } from "./client";
4export default inngest.createFunction(
5  { id: "send-confirmation-sms" },
6  { event: "app/request.confirmed" },
7  async ({ event }) => {
8    const result = await sendSMS({
9      to:,
10      message: "Your request has been confirmed!",
11    });
13    return {
14      status: result.ok ? 200 : 500,
15      body: `SMS Sent (Message SID: ${result.sid})`,

Yeh so @inngest is perhaps one of the best SaaS platforms I have EVER used, incredible stability and crystal clear APIs. Love it already!

Headache prevented by @inngest and their concurrency feature 🤯

This function potentially runs for a long time and this allows us to not run this function again when the previous function hasn't finished based on the combination specified in 'key'.Image of Inngest function

I love this product so much! I spent 2 days setting up some background workers on and it was a total pain in the ass. I gave up and I got my background jobs set up in under 10 minutes with Inngest.

For anyone who is building multi-step AI agents (e.g AutoGPT type systems), I highly recommend building it on top of a job queue orchestration framework like @inngest, the traceability these things provide out of the box is super useful, plus you get timeouts & retries for free.

@inngest feels like a cheat code. Beautifully done!

The trickiest part was handling large background jobs in a serverless infrastructure. @inngest was key to allow us synchronize all your bank transactions to Notion seamlessly.

Just came across @inngest. This looks bloody gorgeous! Can't wait to find an idea to plug this in.

This is something I wish I had when I was running workflows with @awscloud lambdas and SQS.

ok, @inngest is incredible... really clear messaging, great docs, fast and well designed dashboard, great DX, etc... highly recommend.

As someone who used to Promise.all and pray I am happy tools like @inngest exist.
