A mattress company in the United States is looking for professional nappers with an "exceptional sleeping ability".
The New York-based company Casper is hiring "Casper Sleepers" who will also have to create social media content regarding their experience as professional sleepers. According to the company's job posting, the ideal candidate should have an "exceptional sleeping ability, a desire to sleep as much as possible and the ability to sleep through anything".
"Sleep in our stores, and in unexpected settings out in the world. On the rare occasion, you're not sleeping, share your experience with others by creating TikTok-style content to be posted across Casper social media channels," the company stated.
It further added that the candidate must also have a "passion for sharing and talking about all things sleep". Moreover, in addition to being paid to sleep, Casper said that successful candidates will also be allowed to wear pajamas to work, have access to free company products and will have the flexibility of a part-time schedule.
Aspiring sleepers are encouraged to show off their sleep skills on TikTok as part of their application, the company said, adding that the job application is open until August 11.
