An Insider's view of Casper

What's something quirky about your company?

Casper is a sleep company that aims to awaken the potential of a well-rested world —not just for our customers but our employees too! I was amazed that employees get to “sleep in” the Monday following daylight savings time, letting us catch up on the hour we lost!

Hannah

Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Managing the supply chain network's efficiency as the company continues to grow. . With multiple variations of size, color, and packaging to meet all of our sales channel needs, we have to be diligent and proactive to ensure that our manufacturers have a plan on what our production requirements are 3-4 months in advance.

Aaron

Supply Planning Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success on my team means someone who is not only a subject matter expert but possesses a true passion and curiosity to solve complex problems, mine for insights and think creatively. Success also means building strong relationships across the organization, being highly collaborative and serving as a ‘go-to’ resource across the enterprise.

Katie

VP, Performance Media

What is your vision for the company?

Our mission: awaken the potential of a well-rested world. If you're better rested, you're able to fulfill everything else you want to do in the world. Casper is leading a movement in the importance of sleep, inspiring people to invest in their rest and creating the best products and services for better sleep.

Neil

Chief Strategy Officer & Co-Founder

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The Creative team at Casper collaborates with every team. Within our own organization, we have Product Design, Digital Design, Environmental Design & Brand Creative - so there is obvious cross-disciplinary collaboration. We also work with Marketing, Retail, Wholesale, Ops, and others to bring our brand and products to life across all channels

Senior Director, Marketing Operations
