Lambda School Raises $74M in Series C Funding

Lambda School

Lambda School, a San Ramon, Ca.-based coding school that runs computer science courses, raised $74m in Series C funding. 

The round was led by Gigafund, with participation from Tandem Fund and Y Combinator.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.

Led by Austen Allred, Co-Founder & CEO, Lambda School runs virtual 9- and 18-month part-time computer science courses and collects tuition after its students land jobs.

The offerings include the following courses:

  • Data Science to get intensive training for a career in artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Full Stack Web to learn the fundamentals of frontend, backend, servers, databases, APIs, and more.

Rather than pay upfront, students pay a portion of their income after they’re hired. Lambda students have been hired at Google, PillPack (an Amazon company), Uber, Clover, Nexient, Cognizant, and many others.
