About Arch

At Arch, our mission is to build world class financial products for the next generation of investors.
We started with an asset class mostly ignored by traditional financial institutions: cryptocurrencies. In January 2023, we launched our first product, cryptocurrency-backed loans. Customer demand has been very positive, with a rapidly growing loan book and increasing inbound interest each week. We’ve since expanded into other asset classes and products beyond lending. We're growing exponentially with a lot of work to be done, and we’re looking for people to join our mission.
By joining us at this stage you’re not only looking to build products, but also to help build a company. Arch is a close-knit team from best-in-class fintech and consumer companies including Brex, Snapchat, Google, Tinder, Bridgewater Associates and more. We are well funded with backing from top-tier venture capitalists in both traditional finance and crypto including Tribe Capital, Castle Island Ventures, Picus Capital, Global Founders Capital, and more.

About the role

Arch is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the team and help us in our mission. As an early software engineer at Arch, you will play a critical role in designing, developing, and delivering many new products, — from Zero to One. Your technical expertise will inform and shape the future of our technology stack and the processes we use to support it. As we continue to scale our company, there will be opportunities to manage and lead others.

Key tasks and responsibilities

Scope out and build new products in our suite of financial services.
Designing software system architecture and implement scalable (web) services, applications, and APIs.

Qualifications and experience [requirements]

5+ years of experience writing high-quality production code at a venture-backed startup or top technology company.
Proficiency in Typescript and good understanding of the modern JS/TS development toolchain.
Experience creating continuous integration and release workflows.
Experience building robust software systems (reusability, logging, monitoring, testing)
Cloud know-how (we use AWS for a chunk of our stack)
Self-directed and comfortable working autonomously

Bonus points

Experience in fintech
Building auditable systems as we will go through security and financial audits in the future such as SOC II and more
Familiarity with basic blockchain functionality (token vs native), smart contracts (at least understand how they work at a high level)
