We are seeking a passionate technical leader with experience managing Back End technical strategy for a large Consumer brand to join our New York City based Technology team. Our Engineering Directors collaborate with team members to create technical strategy, build teams that ship impactful features, and coach humans to achieve their goals.

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.
