Working at Akido

We constantly invest in the personal growth of our employees, providing opportunities to expand within the organization and pursue personal interests.

What Product Management at Akido is like
Akido Product Managers lead the strategy and development of our products deployed in public health, health system and public service settings. Akido Product Managers (PMs) are uniquely positioned at the center of it all: frequent interaction with our customers and end users, collaborating directly with engineering and shaping the narrative of successful deployment of Akido technology. Much of the entrepreneurial spirit at Akido stems from the PM’s creativity, versatility and motivation, which we rely on to drive the success and growth of our key strategic engagements. Our PMs deep knowledge of our end users, and often those they serve in vulnerable communities, is what allows us to make an impact with the products we build and insights that we uncover.
