These are the notes of a training course on systemd I gave as part of my work with Truelite.

.service units

Describe how to start and stop system services, like daemons.

Services are described in a [Service] section. The Type= configuration describes how the service wants to be brought up:

There are a lot more configuration options to fine-tune how the program should be managed, to limit its resource access or capabilities to harden the system security, to run setup/cleanup scripts before or after it started, and after it gets stopped, to control what signals to send to ask for reload or quit, and quite a lot more.

See: man systemd.service, man systemd.exec, man systemd.resource-control, and man systemd.kill.

See systemctl --all -t service for examples.
