Looking for a job to get you out of bed?
Casper is looking for a Global Sourcing Manager to join our Supply Chain team. This person will report into the Global Sourcing Director and will work closely with Casper's entire cross functional team from Operation, Legal, Merchandising, Quality Engineering to Logistics. You'll interface with our supplier base and help to deliver the sleep products that have been designed by Casper's Product 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.
