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.
