Queuebase is now open for general use! Read our announcement post.

Job scheduling for Next.js

Queuebase is the easiest way to schedule and run background jobs in Next.js

Jobs for any occasion

From delayed to CRON jobs, Queuebase has you covered

Background Jobs

Simple jobs triggered by an event. Great for things like emailing a user after they sign up!

Delayed Jobs

Need something to run a little bit later? Delayed jobs let you run a job after a certain amount of time.


From sending weekly reports or syncing data on a schedule, Queuebase makes adding CRON jobs a breeze.

Top-notch developer experience

Inspired by tools like tRPC and UploadThing, Queuebase leverages the power of TypeScript to provide you with an simple, yet powerful SDK for creating jobs.

Code step 1


Define your jobs

The first step is to define your jobs.

In this job, we're saying "Hello" to whatever name we passed in. Then, we export our jobs object to be used in our code.

Code step 2


Configure your endpoint

Next, we create a new endpoint in Next.js (using the app router) that exposes a POST endpoint.

The POST request is what Queuebase will call when executing a job.

Code step 3


Create your job client

The job client is what you use to interact with your jobs. It's what allows you to queue and run your jobs.

Code step 3


Run your job

Finally, we can run our job!

Our job will be queued in Queuebase. When it runs, Queuebase will make a POST request back to our app that includes the name of this job and it's payload. And yes, jobs can be queued from both the client and the server!

At the very end, we should see "Hello, Brock" printed in our terminal!

The best way to run background jobs in Next.js

The idea to build Queuebase came to me after a lot of frustration trying to do background jobs in my Next.js apps. No solution I tried really felt right to me. They were either overly complex in terms of setup or barely maintained. I set out to build a simple yet powerful solution for managing background jobs in Next.js, one that all developers could use and enjoy.
