Looking for a job to get you out of bed?

At Casper, we design products and experiences to help you dream your way to a better life. We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer focused on Front End to join the site experience/e-commerce team. You'll be an integral part of a fast-moving tech team, focused on engineering the best customer experience imaginable. You’ll help us build new digital experiences to support our suite of products using a modern tech stack, including React, Redux, Webpack and Styled Components to create a world-class shopping experience for customers around the world.

Casper (casper.com) was created to re-imagine sleep from the ground up, beginning with its obsessively engineered, outrageously comfortable mattress. All of Casper’s sleep products — including its pillow, bedding, and furniture — are developed in-house by the company’s award-winning R&D team in San Francisco. Casper was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World 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 dream candidate

  • Able to bring designs to life  developing with our Styled Components driven style framework and CMS integration. Experience with Contentful is a plus.
  • Performance-minded. You code within the constraints of web performance best practices and tradeoffs. 
  • Well-versed in integrating with and deploying AWS services in production
  • Proactive. You can independently seek out answers and own project responsibilities
  • Excellent at giving and receiving feedback from others that promotes a collaborative and humble working culture
  • A clear communicator that can reduce ambiguity and promote transparency with team members and co-workers 
  • Experience working with server-side rendering (e.g. Next.js or Gatsby) a big bonus!!
The syrup on your waffles
  • Participation in our HQ bonus program 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...)..
  • Wellness programs like cash incentives for tracking sleep and fitness, and virtual programs like apps for meditation and mindfulness.
  • Unlimited vacation policy.  If you need time off just take it; we trust you!
  • A full gifted bed set when you join and product discounts for friends and family!

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

June

Senior Director, Marketing Operations
