At IPC we are dedicated to talent at all levels, which encompasses our Junior Talent Programs, consisting of the Internship Program and the Emerging Talent Program (ETP).
Both the Internship and Emerging Talent Programs provide enhanced opportunity to learn about the IPC culture, people, and products through a robust learning and development curriculum roundtables with senior leadership and formal mentor relationships.
Many ETP hires are former IPC summer interns as the program is a direct feeder for targeted entry level roles within IPC.
These programs strive to engage tomorrow’s leaders today by cultivating junior talent and learning from younger generations; truly helping IPC to “Inspire…Aim Higher.”
The IPC Global Summer Internship Program is invested in cultivating our workforce of tomorrow. The program commences in early June and runs through mid-August. Due to the success of the program and the contributions our interns have made, many have extended their stay with IPC working part-time during the school year or in permanent roles within the company. Contact HR@ipc.com to learn more.

The program is comprised of both newly hired talent and current high-performing employees all who are within 1-5 year of their career journey’s. The ETP dually focuses on integration into the organization along with product, soft-skills, and technical training series.
Chief Legal Officer
I was fortunate enough to join IPC on a part-time basis in 2014 as a paralegal, whilst reading law at University. After graduating from the legal practice course, IPC offered me a training contract, giving me the opportunity to work for and learn from experienced in-house barristers and solicitors. After spending a short time working in IPC’s New York office, I returned to London and was eventually promoted to the position of IPC’s Chief Legal Officer, taking responsibility for the global legal team.
IPC has provided me with the time, support and experience needed to grow & I am fortunate to have been surrounded by amazing colleagues who have been patient enough to mentor me throughout my career. I feel privileged to now be a leader at IPC and be positioned to do the same for others. The inherent mentoring culture is one of the really special things about IPC.’
I joined IPC in late December of 2000 after graduating with a B.S in Electrical Engineering. During my college career, I completed a few internships and had an opportunity to study abroad. This experience was instrumental in my decision-making process to join IPC. I knew I wanted to join a company that allowed me to continue to explore new technologies and create tactile products for our customers. At the time, I knew very little about IPC’s customers, only that they were some of the most demanding and difficult to deal with in this space. I thought to myself “well this should be interesting”!
Since joining as an Associate Member of the Technical Staff, I was given the opportunity to work on many different areas of the product line such as DSP programming for the Applications Module to working on the core IP messaging subsystem of Alliance to working on core Alliance TDM switching code. I was then given the opportunity to design and implement IPC’s first SIP standard based line interfacing card for private line access, a very important milestone and progression for the product line into the pure IP space. And then part of the team that would design and implement Unigy, a revolutionary change for the company, transitioning from a proprietary HW based solution to a pure soft switch solution based on off the shelf HW.
Around the time I was promoted to Principle Member of the Technical Staff, I had an opportunity to go into management and lead a team of developers focused on voice applications. Not long after, I was leading several teams of developers. Then I accepted an opportunity to lead development and testing of our SaaS based solution. And more recently to lead software development for all our Unigy based products. Throughout all the years, IPC has given me many opportunities and challenges which I have accepted, and which allowed me to learn, grow and advance my career with the support of some very smart and patient colleagues. I feel privileged to be part of this team and to serve our customers by providing relevant products and solutions that they rely on every day.
VP Chief Process Officer
When I started IPC as an Administrative Assistant I could have not imagined 20 years later, I would hold the role of VP, Chief Process Officer. Needless to say I have held multiple different roles in my journey. Looking at my skill set, the common thread in each role is working directly with people, solving problems, and providing support to both the work within the organization and more importantly the people who work at IPC.
IPC has a place in my heart both professionally and personally. IPC gave me the chance to try new things, get involved, and grow as a person. I will always be thankful to the people who believed in me and gave me the opportunity to build life-long relationships and connections. These connections plus meaningful and purposeful work have allowed me to excel in my career. To this day IPC continues to provide me with new skills, challenges, and responsibilities and give me the tools and support I need to be successful.
Every day I have the privilege to work with a great group of dedicated leaders and co-workers who share their experiences and work together in the spirit of achieving collective goals and growth of our organization. I have created my success story at IPC and have a continued aspirational journey to further grow and nurture others in their careers as well.
IPC Global Summer Intern 2020 &
Part-Time Intern for the 2021-2021 School Year. Departments: R&D (Deployment Optimization Team) & Information
Technology (Help Desk Analyst)
Working at IPC as part of their 2020 Global Internship Program has been one of the best experiences in my early career. I have had the opportunity to work in two departments since June of 2020, Research and Development as well as Information Technology; I have been mentored and taught many facets of working in a corporate environment. IPC has provided me with learning and development opportunities applicable to my field of study and as a result I feel invested in by the company. The experience that I have gained over the last 10 months is experience that has propelled me forward in my career and has helped me grow both personally and professionally.
Emerging Talent Program (ETP) 2020 & Former IPC Global Summer Intern (2018 & 2019).
Department: R&D (Software Engineering Team)
Being one of the early members of the ETP, the program has benefited me significantly. From understanding IPC’s niche market to learning from the senior leaders of various departments, the ETP has provided me with a deep understanding of IPC’s products and company culture. The Emerging Talent Program also had workshops on behaviors required for success in a corporate environment which helped me transition from school to a workplace culture. The biggest takeaway for me was the effort by IPC to adapt the program to the COVID-19 pandemic; in these unprecedented times, IPC still ensured we had a way to feel connected as a class through our ETP class virtual check-in sessions amongst other social and educational events.
I was hired by IPC Sydney for an internship in 2006 while I was studying at university, and after the 6 month internship had been completed I was offered a full time role as a junior engineer. I was lucky to learn from a lot of the existing technologies and platforms that IPC used on the voice and data network, such as the DNX and Newbridge platforms, as well as get in on the ground floor when a lot of the newer technologies were introduced, such as the EVS and Connexus networks. During this time I also had the opportunity to travel to a number of other IPC locations around the world for project work, such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, and London.
In 2012 I was fortunate to be able to transfer to the Global Engineering group in New York, where I worked as a Senior Design Engineer and was primarily focused on the optical equipment in the network. I moved back to Sydney at the end of 2017, and I have since transitioned to the role as Manager for Customer Engineering in APAC.
IPC has provided me with a lot of opportunities to work on challenging projects and see parts of the world that would otherwise still be on my wishlist.
Senior Customer Relationship Manager
I joined IPC in 2013 as Provisioning Analyst, supporting one of IPC’s major global clients, based in Singapore. I was promoted to Customer Support Supervisor shortly after a year. In 2016, I was given the opportunity to take up a new role with the APAC CRM team through IPC’s Internal Mobility Program. During my CRM career, I was very honored to receive recognition and the Circle of Excellence Award in FY 2017. I was subsequently promoted to Senior CRM in 2019.
Through my entire career with IPC, I am thankful to all the wonderful people who were patient and willing to guide me throughout this rewarding journey. My achievements were not just based on my individual effort but were the result of collaborative efforts with my teammates, and the constant support and encouragement received from my supervisors, mentors and colleagues globally. I am fortunate to be able to pursue career enhancement courses through IPC’s Tuition Reimbursement Program and I aim to continue to contribute to the company in years to come.
