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 Eight Sleep is looking for an exceptional Web Designer to join the team. The ideal candidate has worked within a start-up or midsize company in small squad-like teams. This role will own the design of the Eight Sleep website (eightsleep.com). The ideal candidate is someone who is a proven leader, an outstanding individual contributor, can take ownership of the end-to-end workflow, and is self-driven and motivated in their work. Someone with high standards for product quality, and a passion for health tech and wellness will thrive in this role.

This role is eligible for remote work from Europe or the UK only.
