Job scheduling has a long history. Job schedulers have been one of the major component of IT infrastructure since the early mainframe system, at first, stacks of punched cards were processed one after the other, hence the term batch processing. The aim of a job scheduler was to arrange, control and optimize work and workload in a production process. The study aimed at achieving a job scheduler that can assign jobs to available resources in such a way that workload leveling can be achieved. The objectives of the study included to; ascertain the existing schedule system, design a model platform for job scheduling, implement the model platform for job scheduling, and test and deploy the model platform for job scheduling. The study adopted the spiral development model. The proposed system was developed using java script which is a client scripting language which is used for creating web and windows application and it has almost all online application since the system is an online system. The developed application was tested with field Meta data and the outcome was according to specification and of desired output. The application was hosted on three different servers, one server for the frontend, another server for the backend and the third server for the database, hosting on the three different servers did the magic by making the system faster and easy to optimize.
