Digital Product Design Lead

Casper, New York

The best bed for better sleep

Looking for a job to get you out of bed?

Casper is seeking a Digital Product Design to join our New-York-based Digital Product Team. At Casper, we believe that better sleep makes for better living. Our Digital Product Team builds products, services and experiences to help our customers dream their way to a better life!

As a Digital Product Design Lead you will drive design across Caspers Mobile applications and Connected Home. This involves integrating new connected products into the Casper ecosystem, thinking about the experience from onboarding to day-to-day use and helping drive the longer term feature and proposition development. This work will help us establish a deeper understanding of our customers and power new experiences that engage our customers and improve their sleep.

 We are looking for a Design Lead who is comfortable traversing between high level vision and meticulous design detail. You should be as energized inventing and building from the ground up, as you are improving and building on existing foundations. You will co-lead the Product Design discipline alongside partners on Site Experience and UX Research. You will share the responsibility for providing support, feedback, inspiration and direction to the design team and uphold design standards across Caspers Digital experiences.  You will ensure the team always remaining focused on driving tangible business value and making our customers smile. This role will report to the VP of Product. 

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.
