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 is free to start with. We Work Remotely does carry developer jobs, but Arc has a pre-vetted global community of high-quality developers in its network.

Arc vs. Techjobs.ca:

While Arc primarily lists roles for developers, Techjobs.ca caters to the local technology job market and reaches a larger, more diverse network of professionals. Of the two, Arc is the slightly costlier choice, charging US$399.00 per post, while Techjobs.ca charges C$325.00 +tax per post.

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.
