Arc provides software companies with fast and non-dilutive growth capital, delivered through a seamless consumerized enterprise technology experience.
It never ceases to amaze us how the capital raising process (debt + equity) for tech companies is not tech enabled. Historically, founders of high-quality startups are forced to choose between dilutive equity and burdensome debt, engaging with traditional capital sources (VC + venture debt) through time-consuming, distracting, offline processes. We are on a mission to change that. Arc is reinventing capital raising for growth companies, through technology.
To carry out this mission, we've raised $11M in seed funding from the best seed-stage VCs in the business, including NFX (Lyft, DoorDash, Trulia) and Bain Capital Ventures (BlockFi, Cameo, Rent the Runway). We are also backed by leading Founders and operators from Stripe, Brex, and Square.
We are seeking a Founding Engineer to join the Arc family. As one of the first technical hires in this exciting venture, you'll design, implement and deliver frontend and backend features, and ideate and execute its architecture. You will work directly alongside the CEO (Don Muir, Stanford GSB) and CTO (Raven Jiang, Stanford CS) to help Arc reinvent startup financing through technology.
You'll solve hard problems and have a deep impact on the end-product. Expect to work in a fast-paced environment, with amazing engineers who believe in our mission. We're looking for passionate engineers who love building and learning.
Do you have strong opinions about how fragments and queries should be structured in a GraphQL app? Have you found that React apps often refresh unnecessarily due to improper use of hooks? Do you enjoy working on a full TypeScript stack that has end-to-end type safety?
Arc is building a fintech app using modern frontend engineering best practices and we are excited to bring on experienced frontend engineers to help us create the best in-app experiences for our customers.
Arc provides software companies with fast and non-dilutive growth capital, delivered through a seamless consumerized enterprise technology experience. Our tech solution and proprietary underwriting model enable us to deliver capital to SaaS founders more quickly and cheaply than legacy offline products, helping founders keep more of the business they built by minimizing dilution. We launched our product in November with an initial $150M fund and have since grown more than 100% MoM in monthly transaction volume.
Our team of experienced operators comes from Facebook, LinkedIn and Brex and we are backed by awesome seed-stage VCs, including Y Combinator, NFX, Bain Capital Ventures and Clocktower Technology Ventures.
You'll be building a beautiful, performant web-app for our customers to have a seamless financing experience. You'll also contribute in building the Backoffice app we use internally to manage operations. All covered by tests. Untested code is broken code.
