A Bengaluru based sleep solutions startup in India is looking for interns, all you have to do is sleep and they’ll pay you a whopping amount of ₹1 Lakh to you.
Wakefit Innovations, which sells mattresses, has announced ‘Sleep Internship’ where you sleep on the job for 9 hours at night and 7 days a week for 100 nights.
“You could be part of our Sleep Interns Batch of 2020. Think you can avoid binging on your favorite shows every night and just sleep for 9 hours instead? Then you could be the ideal candidate we are looking for!,” Wakefit says on its website.
“This exciting role gives you the opportunity to keep your boring day job and to make money while you sleep at night,” the start-up describes.
Wakefit says that a perfect candidate will display an ability to fall asleep just about anywhere – in traffic, in a meeting or even a noisy place like the bus stop.
Rs 1 lakh to sleep for nine hours in the comfort of your own home? It sounds too good to be true, but it is actually true. Just fill in the form and tell them why you deserve this job.
The company Wakefit will monitor the sleeping patterns of their interns, who will be sleeping on the company’s mattresses. Interns will be given a sleep tracker that will monitor their sleep before and after using the mattress. They will also be offered counseling sessions.
Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, director and co-founder of Wakefit, said:
“We are looking to recruit the best sleepers in the country who are willing to go to any lengths to make sleep a priority in their lives. The Sleep Internship initiative aims to bring back the focus of sleep health by celebrating and applauding people who obsess about sleeping well.”
However, the job requires the individual participants to have some basic qualifications, here are a few of them out of the many.
• A completed degree in any field. A history of falling asleep during class will be counted as relevant experience.
• We are seeking sleepy self-starters who are motivated enough to stay in bed for at least 8 hours of solid sleep.
• Should be able to fall asleep within 10-20 minutes of hitting the pillow.
• Strong knowledge and a distinctive point of view on sleep products and how they contribute to better sleep.
• Should demonstrate the qualities of a team player, when the team is likely to miss their bedtime or likely to indulge in activities that discourage sleep.

• A focused and disciplined approach to record and analyze personal sleeping patterns.
• Demonstrated track record of prioritizing sleep over social media.
• Attention to detail and a passion for clean bedsheets, cozy blankets, and funky pajamas.
As well as offering unbelievable employment opportunities for lazy and sleepy fellas, Wakefit has also been encouraging all offices in India to install nap rooms, after they found in a study 86% of Indians would be more productive with one.
