  • You can timer jobs on farm, server, content database or web application scope. What are you trying to achieve or what is your issue? – Steven Van de Craen Oct 10 '17 at 9:19

This is because the SharePoint timer job utilizes SP Timer services under the services on server.

To access this it requires to be deployed at farm level as site and web level features cannot access the SPTimer service object.

Hope this helps

Thanks, Happy Coding.
