About Jared

Highly creative Software Engineer and MBA with the unparalleled determination to change the world.

I love destroying paradigms, going against the mundane status quo and essentially breaking rules (legally of course). It is what fuels me on a daily basis. I am one of the most creative people you will ever meet and I'll always put my heart and soul into a Photoshop or PowerPoint presentation. Additionally, I'm a very good writer. I got that from my Mom.

Biggest inspirations: Steve Jobs, Tony Hseih, Richard Branson

My team and I are trying to turn the sleep industry upside down, starting in New York City. We are seeking a Developer to join us as a ZzZTO (get it?), a dynamite marketer to spread the word and anyone else who wants to help us along the way.

Requirements: Fun, passionate, and ready to rock this industry to its core!


Stay hungry. Stay foolish. - Steve Jobs
