Data Engineering at Casper is a small, but growing team that supports the organization's desire to improve how it uses data. We are looking for an engineer to help us build and iterate on our data pipeline to improve the quality and delivery speed of the many data sources that feed into our data warehouse. This work serves as the foundation for our future efforts such as optimizing ad spend, streamlining business operations, and improving our customer’s experience. As one of the first members of this team, you will play a crucial role in the delivery of features and the direction of the Data Engineering team at Casper.
Casper (casper.com) is a global sleep company that launched in 2014 with an obsessively engineered, outrageously comfortable mattress sold directly to consumers. Its critically acclaimed sleep surface was developed in-house, has a sleek design, and is delivered in a small, "how did they do that?"-sized box. The company is one of the fastest-growing consumer brands of all time, and its product line has expanded to include sheets, pillows, a matching foundation, and a dog mattress. Casper was named one of Fast Company's 50 Most Innovative Companies in 2017, and its eponymous mattress was crowned one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions.
