About Arcanys

Arcanys launched in 2010 to help entrepreneurs and innovators from Australia, Europe and other parts of the globe accelerate their software development with dedicated remote engineers from the Philippines (and, more recently, Bulgaria).

Why work with us?

We are the Five-star employer on Glassdoor with unique spirit—manifested in our amazing talents, passion for technology, and a strong focus on everyone’s career and personal development.

As a company rooted in people, we make a point to offer exciting work opportunities and foster a culture that everyone can meaningfully contribute to.

Join us as a: Fully-remote Sr. Architect/CTO with Node.js

Arcanys is a premier Swiss software development outsourcing firm with nearly 300 employees worldwide. We focus on long term projects only, helping startups, SMEs and a few large companies in the field of SaaS, Fintech, E-commerce and a couple of other industries; sometimes investing development teams as well in exchange for stake in companies.

Facing rapid growth in 2021/2022, Arcanys needs to hire 2 to 3 additional full time software architects to act as part-time CTOs in its portfolio companies as well as a few existing clients.

While most startups need high level CTOs/architects, many early stage ones cannot afford one. This is why Arcanys helps bridge the gap with its architects involved in a few projects at the same time. It is highly challenging and interesting, most often focused on the latest technologies, starting products from scratch or re-engineering them for scale.


  • Act as part-time CTO in (1-3) projects, with the following expectations:
  • Interact with product owners to improve and translate requirements into realistic features
  • Review architecture regularly
  • Handle code reviews and coach developers
  • Handle ad-hoc complex matters (possibly coding, devops matters, etc).
  • Help Arcanys with the continuous improvement and development of its teams, in particular
  • Participate in occasional recruitment activities (exam reviews and if there is interest, participate in interviews)
  • Handle occasional research on newest frameworks and technologies to help improve Arcanys training plans
  • Participate in training and mentoring of more junior developers


  • Minimum 10 years working experience in software development
  • Must be an all-around expert with NodeJS including the latest frameworks
  • Mastery of at least one frontend technology: Angular, React or Vue
  • Some experience with Python, Golang or Java is a plus (used in a few projects but not considered “main” technologies at Arcanys)
  • Experience architecting scalable systems
  • Solid experience with AWS or Azure, preferably with some serverless knowledge.
  • Good knowledge of DevOps
  • Solid written and verbal communication skills in English (our clients are mostly from overseas)

Note: We are looking for a high level software developer. We are not interested in someone who has mainly moved to project management and leadership roles and does not work with code anymore.


We like to make sure the talent is well taken care of, and here are just some of the benefits you will enjoy:

  • Fully Remote position
  • Top compensation based on expertise – we are only looking for top talent and pay accordingly.
  • Long-term work from home + allowances - we let you work from the comfort of your home + amazing allowances you get to enjoy!
  • Flexible working schedule. You can choose your working hours (within reason).
  • 25 days of paid vacation leaves
  • Regular salary increases based on performance
  • Employee Referral Program
  • Flat management style and open-door policy - no micromanagement and your voice is being heard.
