Ellie Mae Senior Vice President of Technical Operations

Robert Baca

As senior vice president of technical operations, Robert Baca runs the strategy and execution for the technical infrastructure that supports one of the largest client bases in the housing industry.

With more than 40% of all loans in the U.S. being originated on the Ellie Mae platform, Baca leads the organization that is responsible for the scale and performance required to handle this percentage of the overall residential mortgage market. In addition to managing this, he and his team connect lenders to the entire mortgage supply chain of third-party providers through the largest cloud network in the industry, all while ensuring that each of the millions of transactions and data exchanges that take place do so as expected and with the highest level of security and data protection. Baca built critical organizations that are accountable for such disciplines as change and release management, performance engineering and Ellie Mae’s first automated testing framework. He was also one of the key stakeholders that introduced the Agile methodology to Ellie Mae.
