We are a fast growing society of dreamers who are hardworking, passionate and slightly coffee obsessed. 

We’re looking for an energetic and creative Product Developer to join our team and bring our designer's vision to life through innovative and exceptional products in both new and existing categories. 

You will be highly motivated and drive all aspects of product development from research, concept, design & development from start to finish. Using your expert CAD skills, you'll bring products to life through in-depth knowledge of working with fabrics and trims, whilst working closely with suppliers to deliver on the brands vision. 

If you love the idea of deeply understanding the customers problems within the sleep & bedding category, and using your skills in product development to create an innovative product solution then this role is for you! 


  • Developing functional products that are true to our brand with a focus on innovation, quality, sustainability and performance. 
  • Facilitate sample production and user feedback loop where products can be meticulously tested, to make genuine improvements to the product. 
  • Assess and address all aspects of the product life cycle from design, testing, forecast, cost, mass production, lead time planning, raw materials, promotion, packaging and finally product end of life.
  • Balance quality and cost from both the business and the consumer lens. 
  • Liaising directly with our offshore suppliers daily, ensuring the development of all new product ranges remain on track to meet timelines.
  • Work collaboratively with the Production Coordinator,  juggling production processes and tight deadlines with an understanding of the marketing calendar. 


  • Minimum of 3 years’ experience in a Product Design or Development role, with experience collaborating with cross functional departments. 
  • Experience working and developing products with offshore suppliers, primarily in China. 
  • Ability to articulate designs and ideas using technical drawings or 3D models is a must. 
  • You’re an innately creative person with a keen eye for detail. You know that even the slightest details or tweaks are important to the design and are appreciated by the consumer. 
  • Obsessed with the way humans interact with products, you love problem solving through design.
