What a job looks like:

Export a function called perform that the runner can call. Your function will receive two arguments, args and exit, use the args to pass varibles to your work and call exit(0) (Or whateve exit code is appropriate) when your task is finished.

exports.perform = function(args, exit) {


Run async_job like this.

async_job -c 8
