Calling All Sleepers: Mattress Firm is Hiring an Intern to Be In-House Bed Tester
Rest, Tweet and Repeat as the First-Ever Social Media Snoozetern
July 12, 2018 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON - Pursuing a degree in catching Zzzzs? Would you rather carry a pillowcase instead of a briefcase? Mattress Firm announced its fall internship, the Snoozetern, who will be a member of the social media team. The new role will give Mattress Firm’s social media followers a first-hand look at the company’s culture, tease new and upcoming product launches and help customers understand how to find the right bed through engaging content. The job application opens today, and closes on July 23.
Getting paid to sleep would be a dream job, right? Mattress Firm is making dreams come true with the newly-created Snoozetern position. Although sleeping is part of the job, it’s not all the position offers.
“We are excited to hire our first ever Snoozetern,” said Scott Thaler, chief marketing officer. “It’s not every day that an intern is hired to sleep on the job, but that’s just one of many perks.”
As the resident napper, day-to-day responsibilities will involve testing the best of the best from newest and top-rated beds, creating regular video content capturing their experience and sharing it on Mattress Firm’s social platforms. Additionally, the Snoozetern will interview the company’s employees and Houston locals about their regular sleep habits and tips. The position is based at Mattress Firm’s home office, BEDQuarters, in Houston.
“In addition to bed testing, the Snoozetern will use our in-house content studio and the latest social tools to build integrated content campaigns as our very own sleep-fluencer,” Thaler said. “These campaigns will be designed to give consumers a preview of our new products, answers to real-time questions, a sneak peek into our company culture at BEDQuarters and introductions to the employees that obsess over finding the right bed for you. The Snoozetern will give consumers behind-the-scenes access to only the dreamiest interviews and several surprising locations that you will have to see to believe.”
Qualified candidates shouldn’t be afraid to use their social savviness in front of and behind the camera, and should have a keen eye for digital storytelling that is both entertaining and educational. Comfort and curiosity are calling, will you answer?
