Description

Looking for a job to get you out of bed?

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.

Our product designers care deeply about human-centered design solutions for Casper.com and its expanding digital touch points. They wear many hats, looking holistically at the end-to-end user experience, and thinking thoroughly through every detail of the interfaces created and stories told. They collaborate across disciplines, working closely with project managers, developers, and brand designers. They are the advocate for the end-user, informing product strategy as they deliver exceptional concepting, wireframes, prototypes, and visual designs.
