Joanne Bacharach, IoT Education Expert
Joanne started her career as an electrical engineer working in photovoltaics and semiconductors. After spending time coding programs to test integrated circuits, she found a passion for software and pivoted, becoming an applications engineer helping customers connect their factory floor equipment to software apps.
In order to help sustain customer’s success with the software, she developed training programs and traveled the world to train customers and partners on best practices. This focus on connectivity in the factory fit nicely with the emerging concepts of IoT, which led to the second career move, working on education and training for all things IoT-related for PTC.
Now, Joanne manages all curriculum and training resource development for PTC, working tightly with the PTC Customer Success teams and partners to ensure the highest quality training is available for PTC’s products worldwide. She is excited on the future of PTC’s training, which will include a focus on bleeding-edge technology like additive manufacturing and AR.
