Why you should listen

Austen Allred, co-founder and CEO of Lambda School. Lambda School empowers students to alter their career paths through learning core technical skills with no tuition upfront. Students only pay after making at least $50K a year within 60 months of graduation from the program. Graduates have been hired into developer roles in Fortune 100 companies and the world’s top startups, including Google, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, IBM, and more. Prior to founding Lambda School, Austen was a senior manager of growth at LendUp, co-founder of Grasswire, and social team lead at Stryde. At LendUp, Austen learned to think about underwriting risk and understanding people, which helped to form the foundations for Lambda School. But even before LendUp or any of his professional experiences, Austen served an LDS mission in the Ukraine when he was 19. There, he worked insane hours in challenging conditions. Through this experience, Austen built resilience in working diligently with no immediate, tangible outcome. He learned to be more process than result oriented, which has provided a great mental model for his founder journey.
