Meet Joey Perricone, Data and Product Manager!
Audicus strives to provide top-tier hearing aids and services to our customers.
Let’s see who’s working behind the scenes to make that happen.
What initially drew you to Audicus, and how’d your career path get you here?
Joey Perricone joined Audicus in 2021 with a background in Neurocognitive Research and Engineering. Prior to joining the team, Joey worked at MIT Lincoln Lab for 4 years, where he helped conduct research on the relationship between hearing loss and aspects of hearing like speech recognition, sound localization, and sound detection. Much of this research was done to address specific challenges faced by U.S. military and veteran populations related to hearing, hearing loss, and its connection to depression and PTSD.
Joey also helped conduct research at NYU’s Infant Action Lab and MindHive project, a citizen science initiative involving web-based psychology experiments. He saw Audicus as a great opportunity to apply his research and engineering background to a fast-moving online hearing company.
What is your role at Audicus?
Joey is the Data and Product Manager at Audicus. He works with all our digital systems, from the online platform our partners at hospitals and correctional facilities use to place orders for hearing aids and accessories, to Audicus’s mobile and web apps like our hearing test and hearing aid simulator.
How do you like to start your mornings?
Joey says he usually starts his morning with coffee and commutes about 30 minutes uptown to the Audicus office in Manhattan. These days he is working more heavily on Audicus’s hearing aid simulator web and mobile app.
What’s your favorite memory with Audicus?
Joey says Audicus Thanksgiving 2021 in-office is his favorite memory so far. He recalls, “We all went around the table and said what we were thankful for. It was one of those early post-covid experiences. It got surprisingly heavy, but was really nice.”
What do you think makes our team culture unique?
“I work with smart and hard-working people who also have a sense of humor, which is important for both culture and sanity.”
What’s something surprising that not many people know about you?
Joey says “I played drums in an emo/hardcore band in junior high and high school called Our Last Night. Now I play bass in a band called Willyboy in NYC, and help produce music within the comedy scene here.”
Outside of work, what are your favorite things to do?
Joey says he misses his math team from high school and still tries to work on math puzzles every week. He also says he is trying to get better at making Italian sauces and pasta dishes. He recently went to Florence, Italy for a wedding and says he can’t wait to go back.
Thank you for all you do for Audicus, Joey! We appreciate you and your many efforts!
