Joseph Akoni is a talented Product Manager at LinkedIn where he works on the Identity (Profile) team. He creates​ products to help members showcase their best personal and professional selves in order to connect them to the best economic opportunity available. 

Joseph is passionate about the intersection of product and culture and takes pride in creating global products that resonate with local cultures and communities. 

One of his focuses at LinkedIn has been on developing solutions to improve the profile experience for LinkedIn’s non-United States based users who represent over 450+ million members. 

Joseph is the creative behind the LinkedIn Voice Pronunciation feature helping networkers to pronounce names correctly.  This is an excellent feature that helps to break down the barriers across cultures and facilitate clear communication.  

I was so impressed with this feature that I had to interview him on YOUR CAREER Podcast and find out his career journey. And what an amazing journey it has been!

Joseph has extensive experience in the technology sector having worked as a Product Manager at Lyft and NVIDIA, and across various business development and marketing roles at Intel. ​He has both his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Computer Engineering from the University of Florida and the Georgia Institute of Technology, respectively, and has recently received his MBA from the University of California-Berkeley Haas School of Business. 

Most recently, Joseph has founded ThePZeroPM.com, the premiere website for tips and tools to ensure a successful start to anyone’s product management career.
