Company Overview

About Sleeping Duck

Hatched in 2014, Sleeping Duck was founded by Melbourne-based engineers Winston Wijeyeratne and Selvam Sinnappan. Frustrated by the expensive 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 service, 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 products, we look forward to continuing to make the sleep experience personal and exciting!
