He linked up with Leinster fresh from securing the Bouclier de Brennus with French club Clermont Auvergne in the summer of 2010.
Commenting on his extended deal, the 46-year-old New Zealander said: "I am delighted to sign an extension to my contract here with Leinster. I'm lucky to be part of such a positive coaching team and to have the top quality support staff we have.
"The wider Leinster community have really made my family and I feel welcome here and we have been fortunate to have enjoyed some memorable success on the field. Let's hope that with continued hard work - and a bit of luck - that there will be more bright days ahead."
Leinster Rugby Chief Executive Michael Dawson added: "I am delighted that Joe will remain with Leinster for the next two seasons. Since arriving from France he has overseen and led a period of great growth and success for Leinster, both on and off the field.
"Joe is an outstanding leader and ambassador for the province and he continues to cultivate strong values within our organisation. I know that this news will be welcomed by our loyal following across the province and beyond."
