Senior Mechanical Engineer
Eight Sleep is the world’s first sleep fitness company. Our mission is to fuel human potential through optimal sleep. We use innovative technology, detailed design, and proven science and data to personalize and improve each night for everybody—changing the way people sleep forever and for the better.
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. We’re excited by the success of the Pod to date and still have a long way to go toward achieving our mission.
That is why we’re looking for an experienced mechanical engineer to develop products from concept through to production. You’ll be part of a small, mission-driven team and have significant ownership over decisions. We’re growing quickly so there are ample opportunities for career growth.
