Senior Product Designer
Eight Sleep is the world’s first sleep fitness company. Our mission is to fuel human potential through optimal sleep.

Backed by leading Silicon Valley investors, we have been recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2018, 2022 and 2023.
Our temperature-regulated technology, the Pod, is an absolute game changer, improving people's health and happiness by changing the way they sleep. The Pod was also recognized two years in a row by TIME's “Best Inventions of the Year.” It is available for purchase in North America (the United States and Canada) and throughout the United Kingdom, Europe (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Denmark) and Australia via eightsleep.com.
