FinTech Female Fridays: Meet SVP Cloud Engineering at Moodys Corporation, Divya Elaty

Divya started her career as Data Engineer to improve the process of transforming, analyzing, profiling, validating, and cleansing the data. "Sheer volume of data is growing every day within the organizations. The challenge is to come up with innovative solutions that solve data problems and help leadership take the right decisions. Public Cloud was evolving and as a technology enthusiast, I have learned the modern ways of doing things in cloud. Adopted cloud-native solutions, and implemented, and delivered several projects successfully. This experience has helped me to get on the opportunity with Moody’s."

Divya Elaty is currently heading cloud engineering team and the team is working on building a modern data lake in cloud. "The goal is to build an enterprise data mesh across the organization. Moody's has a good work-life balance. The culture allows for opinions to be heard and differences in judgment to be accepted. I’m an advocate for learn and grow."

Divya is proud to be impacting FinTech by "building a robust data collection, integration and workflow process that could be used as a reference model within the organization for cloud implementation. Ultimately this data is incorporated into client-facing platforms that helps risk-based decision making for investors and reshaping financial markets, "She says.

When asked how she made her career decision, Divya shares: "Coming out of my comfort zone and explore what’s new or latest in technology is the best decision made. "
