Running App in docker environment

We have an app that runs forever and just does background management of tasks. In order for this to work, we simply have a VM spun up which only has the job of running the application.

Is there a way to run an app in a docker environment?

Would be really cool to just be able to define background jobs without the need to go for rather awkward workarounds.

We are facing a very similar requirement though we will probably seek to solve this by running an outside service in AWS Lambda + Batch to trigger some table manipulation via the Table API.
