A Seat at the Table with DataRobot’s Sirisha Kadamalakalva
Why is it so important to have a seat at the table? Sirisha Kadamalakalva shares how she’s straddled the worlds of investment banking and technology to become DataRobot’s first Chief Strategy Officer.
Sirisha began her career in tech as a software engineer at Oracle but decided to pursue a path in investment banking after completing her MBA at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business. Beginning with a summer internship at Merrill Lynch, she rose through the ranks to become the first and only female Managing Director of Software Investment Banking in the entire company. Sirisha made the decision to have children early in her career but believes that her industry has become more accommodating of parents and family life.
Sirisha believes that there is still a lack of female role models in investment banking. Despite efforts to recruit more women into the industry, few are retained in senior positions.
