Why join Sleep Cycle? 

Sleep is one of the few things in life we can safely claim we all have in common. So fundamental to us all, that when we don’t get enough good quality sleep we struggle to function in all other aspects of life. 

We were crowned one of the most innovative apps in 2016 by App Store and have been featured in CNN, BBC, Wired, The Guardian, New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. 

As a result of a steady organic growth of product and team, Sleep Cycle has over 30 million downloads worldwide, with millions of active users and growing. Sleep Cycle is rated as the best sleep tracker on the market and we are now looking for people who can be a part of our next chapter, taking our product to the next level. 

You will be joining a rapidly growing company who will provide a challenging and rewarding role with excellent career opportunities.
