Job seekers may soon want to add another skill: sleeping.
Mattress company Casper Sleep Inc. is hiring people — “Sleepers” — to test their products in a new one-of-kind job listing.
Casper produces mattresses, pillows, bed frames and bedding, and people who have “exceptional sleeping ability” and “a desire to sleep as much as possible” could soon be on the company’s payroll, a new job listing from the company shows.
The job requirements are only that you enjoy sleeping — and the possibility of documenting your feelings on the Casper products you tested on camera for social media platforms that may include Twitter
Sleepers will “sleep in our stores, and in unexpected settings out in the world,” the listing says — a Casper spokesperson told MarketWatch they did not know specifics about sleeping situations for the job as of Monday.
The job is part-time, and no pay rate is listed for the job, but the gig does come with some free Casper products and allows Sleepers to have a “pajama dress-code.”
Casper was started in 2014 and is based in New York City. From 2020 to 2022, the company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol CSPR — Durational Capital Management acquired Casper in 2022 and took the company private.
