Looking for a job to get you out of bed?

We are looking for a passionate, experienced Senior Data Engineer to join Casper’s Data Engineering team as we continue building our data warehouse and platform capabilities. Our vision to be the world’s most-loved and largest sleep company is supported by leveraging data and insights to drive the business forward. Data Engineering provides the platform that enables Casper to efficiently produce, manage and consume high quality data.

As an engineer, you will support the evolution of our data platform and analytics capabilities by driving how we process and model new data sets, develop/iterate on internal tooling and infrastructure, and support secure, scalable, and responsible data practices. As a technical leader within the team, you will mentor junior team members, conduct code reviews, and document and share your knowledge with the team.

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.

  • Develop data pipelines to ingest, validate, and model data to support analytics and business operations needs

  • Collaborate with other engineers and product managers in solving interesting and challenging problems across our systems
  • Advance modern, agile software development practices and help build a culture of great engineering and organizational practices
  • Mentor. Conduct code reviews and document and share your knowledge with the team
  • Learn. Learn from the team and on your own what you might not know about data infrastructure, business operations, and open source tooling to make you a stronger asset to the team

    • Proficiency in Python and SQL

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
