Moody’s Analytics Technology Rotation (MATR) Program

Over 600 of Moody’s Analytics’ employees are software developers, engineers, or architects. The MATR program offers recent college graduates a dynamic, challenging, and rewarding start to a career in financial technology.

Benefits include:

  • The opportunity to drive the development of products and solutions that make an impact around the world while working on a variety of challenging projects.
  • A two-year program in which participants rotate across different business lines and offices located in the US.
  • Skill-based training, one-to-one mentoring, and unique exposure to senior leaders throughout the program.

Create Confidence is the common cause that serves as a unifying theme for everyone at Moody’s Analytics. Our goal is to align the performance and success of every MA employee with the ambitions and aspirations that we have for Moody’s Analytics as an enterprise.

Create Confidence:

  • Expresses the type of interaction that we seek to have with our customers. In our business, it is imperative that we go above and beyond to deliver the best products and services to our customers.
  • Emphasizes the importance of trust that flows from our promise to meet our commitments to external customers as well as our colleagues across the company.
  • Reflects an essential attribute for effective collaboration: execution at a world-class standard is possible only if we are all confident in one another’s commitment to excellence, and feel assured that we can rely on our colleagues for timely and high quality contributions.


There are three central elements of Create Confidence:

  • Each year, the Create Confidence Award recognizes individuals who embody the Create Confidence values: being excellent; going the extra mile, focusing on the customer; collaborating with colleagues; and taking the lead. We celebrate the hundreds of nominees as well as our winners.
  • With Teams In Action, we share stories that aim to inspire teams to seek Wow results; seed new ideas to achieve better communication, trust, and accountability; and foster pride in the Moody’s Analytics culture and brand.
  • Our Create Confidence Local Chapters spearhead initiatives within individual departments or office locations that promote the Create Confidence cause and values. These activities range from hosting a bake-off to publishing and sharing a quarterly newsletter to planning and executing a full week of employee appreciation activities.
  • This video provides a high-level introduction into Creat Confidence - the theme that unifies MA colleagues around the world.

Our business benefits from having many different perspectives. That's why we actively promote diversity at every level of Moody's. We work hard to ensure that all employees, from company leaders to new hires, are respected, included and empowered.

Our Strategy

Employee Resource Groups

Fostering a culture where everyone feels included and empowered means giving everyone a voice to express their views. Moody’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide a platform for our employees to share their ideas on ways to make Moody's work culture even more inclusive. ERGs provide information to our leaders on how managers can support employees and how we can make Moody's an employer of choice for all. We have five groups with a total of 28 chapters across the Americas, EMEA, and APAC:

Workplace Flexibility

Flexible work arrangements allow our employees the opportunity to better manage their work and personal needs while also ensuring that business demands are still met. Individuals can modify their hours and work locations in consultation with their managers.

Women in Leadership

To help us achieve a diverse and high-performing culture and to build Moody’s leadership pipeline, we offer hundreds of hours of training, mentoring, and networking opportunities geared toward women’s professional needs. These include:

  • Building Leadership Presence Through Powerful Communication
  • Senior Women’s Leadership Forum
  • Leadership Spotlights and Fireside Chats
  • Working Parents Circle
  • Group Mentoring and “60 Minutes” Speed Mentoring programs

External Recognition for Moody's Diversity and Inclusion Efforts

Open the door to a better future

We believe that knowledge fuels opportunity. The core of our business is to provide insights that help equip participants in the global financial markets to understand risks and move forward with critical insight. Our approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is rooted in that same belief. We seek to empower people with the knowledge, resources and confidence they need to create a better future - for themselves, their communities and the environment.

"When our actions - individually and together as a company - give more people what they need in order to pursue their ambitions, it creates ever-widening ripples of opportunity throughout communities and our world."

Arlene Isaacs-Lowe, Global Head of Corporate Social Responsibility

Our global CSR efforts are focused around four core areas:

Moody's Foundation

Established in 2002, Moody's Foundation directs our corporate philanthropy and sponsors our employee giving programs that contribute to stronger communities - and a brighter future - for people around the world. 

Employee Matching

We support the initiatives for which Moody's employees volunteer their time and effort. Through the Dollars for Doers program, employees who volunteer 40 or more hours at a single nonprofit during the year can direct a $500 Moody's Foundation grant to that nonprofit. We also match up to $2,500 of employees' personal gifts to eligible tax-exempt nonprofits or governmental organizations.
