Resident is an industry-leader in the Direct-to-Consumer mattress and home furnishings category. Since our founding of the award-winning Nectar Sleep in 2016 (with over 1 million happy sleepers and counting), we have also launched the Dreamcloud, Awara and Siena brands to cater to a variety of sleep preferences. Our mission is simple, we strive to make inspiring products people love coming home to (and to help everyone afford a great night’s sleep)!

Our company is built around continuously improving our ability to introduce new customers to our products and wow them with exceptional experiences through the shopping and post purchase journey. We love to use data and metrics to drive our decisions, while keeping in mind that customers don’t speak in numbers and that each one should be treated as a member of our family.

Oh, and by the way – we’ve been doing the “remote work thing” since the day we started. Here at Resident, you can expect to work alongside a hard working team who understand how to create meaningful connections and get great work done, virtually – it’s in our nature!
