Who are we?
Arcanys, a software development outsourcing company, is an awe-inspiring synergy of Swiss entrepreneurial expertise and remarkable Filipino technological acumen. With its headquarters in the thriving Asian metropolis Cebu City, it is officially headed by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs and mainly comprised of extraordinarily skilled Filipino professionals. Armed with an already diverse business portfolio, the company specializes in developing high-quality software applications and platforms for a globally diverse clientele—from startups to established businesses—with a strong focus on innovation.
Since its inception, Arcanys has been continuously evolving from a conventional software development company into a multidisciplinary outsourcing provider. Thus, we are consistently looking for not only tech experts that develop high-quality software applications and platforms but also highly trained versatile professionals with a diverse list of competencies. Join us as an: Investment Associate
This is a global position, which can be handled from home at 100%. There is a preference for people living in the countries where we have entities (Philippines, Hong Kong, Bulgaria), or regions where we invest (Europe/Australia) but we shall consider qualified applicants from all countries.
We’re looking for a reformed law graduate that has switched his/her career to the investment/venture capital industry.
INVESTMENT ASSOCIATE AND LEGAL COUNSEL
In this role, you'll get to fill two roles within our group:
Investment associate: Arcanys Ventures (AV) is currently investing in 5 to 10 companies per year. This is a critical area of growth for our business and we can expect a higher number in the coming years. There is a need to:
Maintain and develop relationships with seed funds, VC funds, accelerators and other venture organizations, where AV comes as a co-investor.
Help with screening and discussions with candidate startups for investment
Help with due diligence
Link portfolio companies with relevant investors
We estimate the investment associate role should keep you busy 75-80% of the time (30-32 hours/week).
Part-time legal counsel: you may not enjoy this part as much (since you’ve switched your career focus), but it is a really important role that we need covered, that only warrants someone’s involvement part-time. In this role, you would:
Help review legal contracts related to employees (focus only on templates and not handle the actual preparation of all employment contracts), agreements with consulting clients, investments agreements, convertible notes, etc.
Liaise with country specific counsel
We estimate this workload at about 8-10 hours/week
What you'll need to suceed:
Major in Law. There is no need for country specific law qualification because we need you to handle matters in all the countries we operate and invest.
2-4 years experience in an accelerator, seed fund or venture capital firm, preferably at the seed / Series A stage.
Excellent written and spoken English skills
With good problem solving skills and self-driven (we are a pretty flat company and do not believe in micromanagement).
Work experience in multiple countries is an advantage
We like to make sure the talent is well taken cared of, and here are just some of the benefits you will enjoy:
Top compensation based on expertise – we are only looking for top talent and pay accordingly.
Flexible working schedule. You can choose your working hours (within reason).
Flat management style and open-door policy - no micromanagement and your voice is being heard!
Enrolment to HMO for a maximum of 3 immediate dependents on your 1st day.
Incentive-based wellness program.
Toastmasters, Wednesday Classes, and other learning opportunities.
