Arch Systems is seeking an ambitious and rising individual to start as a Business Development Representative (BDR) working with sales and marketing to generate new leads and help drive Arch’s rapid growth.
This BDR role will focus on the surface mount technology (SMT) space working to reach Tier 1 and Tier 2 EMS providers as well as OEMs that have their own manufacturing facilities to generate qualified leads for ArchFX phase 1 pilots engagements.

We are looking for talented and driven people who seek a lasting impact both in transforming manufacturing operations as well as making the Earth more efficient, connected, and sustainable. Come join our diverse and passionate team.
Compensation will be determined for a BDR at a Series A stage technology startup based on experience and location. We benchmark our compensation against high cost of living/market rates and use a compensation formula that includes a location factor to determine total target compensation as it compares to a high cost of living/market area. At Arch, sales team overall target earnings (OTE) is comprised of 50% base salary and 50% quota attainment.

Applicants outside the US will be considered to become employees of one of our trusted partners and will receive benefits through them as well as NQSOs from Arch Systems

While the majority of our team is based in the San Francisco Bay Area near our Palo Alto HQ, we have team members in over 5 countries across various time zones.
