Zynga isn't thethis week as Yahoo might also have a void in its cloud services department.
Along with being part of what seems to be a continuing movement from Yahoo to the Internet hosting service, AllThingsD also highlighted the departure as significant given that Murphy was one of the top female executives at the Cupertino, Calif.-based corporation aside from CEO Marissa Mayer.
Murphy previously appeared in a career-related video series dubbed "Life at Yahoo" in 2011, describing that it was the startup-like feel that initially drew her to the technology company.
“You want to build cloud systems but you want to do it quickly? This is the place you want to come to," Murphy described at the time.
UPDATE: Go Daddy reached out to us with the following details as well as a statement from GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving:
Elissa Murphy is more than just a top 'woman' in technology, she's a top 'person' at the top of her field and one we are thrilled to have join us at Go Daddy as our new Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President of Platforms. Elissa just plain rocks.
Murphy officially starts at Go Daddy on May 6.
