A mattress company, Eachnight is hiring people to sleep and get paid for a whopping $15,000 (which is over ₵8,600).
According to Fox23, the company is looking for five people “to test a few theories behind the pros and cons of napping.”
The lucky team will have to nap every day for 30 days. They must sleep alone so they’re not disturbed and will have to write the reviews of the naps that will be assigned by the company.
Naps will differ in length and will help determine how a midday sleep helps memory, motivation and productivity. The applicants must be over the age of 18 and the deadline to apply is May 31.
“We are currently hiring for a team of five people to become ‘Nap Reviewers’, and get paid to nap! Also, no, we are not joking,” the company stated on its website.
“Over the course of 30 days, our dedicated nappers will be required to take part in a variety of experiments testing out theories such as the best nap duration for feeling refreshed, the effects of napping on overall levels of fatigue, and the effects of napping on memory, motivation, and productivity,” it added.
Eachnight said it “wanted to test a few theories behind the pros and cons of napping to provide our community with some valuable insight” because it knows “that in general different length naps have different benefits, but wants “to put this to the test”. The company explained:
“The individuals will be required to take part in a video call before and after each experiment, to ensure they understand their tasks fully, and to complete a verbal questionnaire detailing their experiences and results.
