We turn to Sidekiq when we need to run background jobs in a Rails app, which we do for just about every Rails app we write. We especially like the ops tools that come with Sidekiq, which make it easy to monitor and maintain.
Background processing of Pushover push notifications to admins when sales occur, payments processing via Pin Payments, Campaign Monitor transaction email sending, and Intercom event API posting.
Sidekiq is used extensively for a multitude of background jobs, everything from audio/video post-processing to sending push notifications.
We offload our background processing tasks (photo sizing, watermarking, etc.) to Sidekiq to keep our app's performance optimal.
