Jobs are designed for automated execution (scheduled or manually) of Databricks Notebooks, JARs, spark-submit jobs etc. Its essentially a generic framework to run any kind of Data Engg, Data Analysis or Data Science workload. Delta Live Tables on the other hand are designed for easy to build and manage reliable data pipelines that deliver high quality data on Delta Lake. DLT helps data engineering teams simplify ETL development and management with declarative pipeline development, automatic data testing, and deep visibility for monitoring and recovery.
