Using custom (non-email) job notifications

I am currently evaluating the suitability of Workflow Manager for our project. From what I understand, job notifications via emails are automatically triggered at certain events throughout the lifecycle of a job (job created, assigned etc). I would like to be able to call an executable (we would like to use our own custom messaging service/app.. like JMS) when such events happen instead of using emails for notification. How, if possible, can this be done?

I am aware that such custom notifications can be achieved via a custom step (that launches our executable) in the workflow of the job, but non-email event-based notifications would fit our needs best.
