Description

Looking for a job to get you out of bed?

We are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join our Tech Ops team. We believe in maximizing the potential of our engineers by providing them with tools and systems that help reduce the time and effort to build and ship code. The role of the SRE will be to build and maintain a secure and stable platform as well as be an advocate for best practices for monitoring and systems architecture to the rest of our engineering team.

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.

We are deeply committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce so that we represent all those who dream big equally.

  • Spread your knowledge of operations and systems to help engineering teams own and operate solutions independently.

  • Salary to pay your bills, a potential bonus for some splurging, and equity so that you’re part of the Casper family.
  • Medical, vision, and dental insurance to help you with those coughs or cavities (too many waffles...).
  • 401K program so you have some savings for later in life.
  • Extra cash incentives for being healthy and fit (we actually give you money to track your sleep!).
  • Unlimited vacation policy.  If you need time off just take it; we trust you! And Summer Fridays.
  • Paid 5 week sabbatical after you have been with Casper family 5 years.
  • Generous Parental Leave.
  • Bi-weekly catered lunches to catch up with your teammates.
