Alexsander Akers

Why, hello there!

My name is Alex. I work on Microsoft Outlook for iOS and live in New York City. Sometimes I speak at conferences. Feel free to tweet me @a2.


Originally from New York City, Iā€™m a software engineer with a drive for creating polished visuals and delightful experiences that users love.

I paused my college education to lead mobile engineering efforts at Branch where I worked on the iOS client for the link-sharing social network Potluck, garnering the attention of Facebook who later purchased the company.

Fast forwarding a few years, I joined the post-acquisition Wunderlist team in 2016 to work on Microsoft To Do with a focus on Apple platforms until I changed teams to work on Outlook for iOS.
