About Sleeping Duck

Sleeping Duck was founded by two Melbourne-based engineers Selvam and Winston, in 2014. Frustrated by the expensive, tedious, and confusing process of buying a bed, the duo decided to roll up their sleeves and change the way the industry worked.

Since then, Sleeping Duck has won multiple awards across product and customer experience, have been officially certified as a Great Place to Work and are finalists in the Australian HR Awards Employer of Choice (1 - 99 Employees) category. We have expanded our product range beyond mattresses, and we're now a 60 person team including Marketing, Product Development, Supply Chain, Customer Experience and Technology, and are growing!

With ambitious plans for our people and our products, we look forward to continuing to make the sleep experience personal and exciting!

Our Culture


We have been growing fast over the past two years. It is an exciting time to be a part of our story as we set out to push the boundaries of creating the best possible sleep experience even further.

Our Duckies (aka Sleeping Duck crew) describe our culture as supportive, mission-driven, customer-focused, open, 'human', and encouraging of giving things a go.

All our Duckies have the space to be themselves, share ideas and feel part of something great where you can be proud to say you work at Sleeping Duck! - "100% of our people would recommend Sleeping Duck as a great place to work!"

Our Environment

From the hallways of our brand new HQ in Prahran, you instantly feel the Sleeping Duck vibe and energy! Positive & Inclusive spring to mind.

The office is a super modern, industrial and funky, open plan space where we love to get together and collaborate - whether that's on the couch, in one of our duck meeting room spaces, the library (includes massage chairs) or a popular fav, the beautiful outdoor terrace!
