Arc vs. We Work Remotely:

We Work Remotely advertises remote vacancies, attracts a large local audience, and offers many helpful features. Pricing starts at US$299.00, while Arc's pricing is project dependent. We Work Remotely does carry developer jobs, but Arc has a pre-vetted global community of high-quality developers in its network.

Arc vs. Toptal:

Both Toptal and Arc screen developers, so employers have the pick of qualified candidates. The platforms also offer similar hiring solutions, such as candidate matching tools and account support, but Arc has a longer freelancer trial period than Toptal, affording companies greater assurance of perfectly matched talent.

Arc vs. CIPS Job Board:

If you want to hire locally, the CIPS Job Board is worth consideration. It reaches a wide audience and attracts high-quality IT professionals and software developers living in Canada. Arc's network also has over 1,000 developers living in Canada, but the CIPS Job Board is much more affordable, especially if you become a member.
