The intern, which the company is calling a “Snoozetern," will sleep on the job as an in-house bed tester. The hire will also be expected to make regular appearances on Mattress Firm’s social media channels.

According to Mattress Firm, the paid internship will be 20 hours per week and will run from Aug. 15 through Nov. 15.

  • Proficient in napping, regardless of time of day
  • Interested in exposure to different surfaces, textures and sleep positions
  • Passionate about sleep and comfort
