Build, test, then deploy background jobs and scheduled tasks without worrying about infrastructure or queues — so you can focus on your product.
Develop, test, and deploy background tasks across any language using a single CLI built for developer productivity.
Easily write background jobs and scheduled tasks using Node, Deno, Typesript, Reason, Elm — or any other language in your stack. A single command scaffolds the entire serverless function ready to test.
Test your functions locally with a single command, using randomly generated data or real production data via replay, then run a real job queue in your project with zero infra via
Roll out new background jobs and scheduled tasks using a single command — without setting up a single server, queue, or Redis instance, and without changing your app.
“Sooooo much easier than AWS”Between
Inngest’s platform provides cloud-native, serverless features essential for modern development, allowing you to build complex products without servers, configuration, or complexity.
Functions run and scale automatically based off of incoming events and webhooks, without specifying or managing queues
Build and locally test functions without any extra work, with single commands to invoke and deploy functions
Every function is fully versioned, with test and production environments provided for each account
Run any logic in the background via a single JSON event — without worrying about servers or private APIs
Build and test serverless functions which run on a schedule, without managing infra or crons
Attribute each function directly to the relevant user — whether it's an internal employee or a customer
People use Inngest to reliably run background work, serverless functions, and scheduled jobs across for a variety of use cases — including building out internal tasks for the wider team.
Common examples include webhook management, background jobs, scheduled tasks, and end-to-end automation.
Inngest’s core difference is that it’s event-driven. Send a single JSON event to Inngest and run any number of functions automatically, and we’ll statically type-check the JSON payload then store each event for logging and backtesting. It's way better than old-school RPC.
This is 100% the dev/prod parity that we’re lacking for queue-based systems.
