About the Video

As a native of rural Utah, making careers in tech accessible to those lacking traditional resources and support is deeply personal to Lambda School Cofounder and CEO Austen Allred.

In his interview with the CEO of Torch, Cameron Yarbrough, Austen opens up about how he maintains his internal equilibrium through the highs and lows of being a founder. He reflects on a failed startup, and how it inspires Lambda School’s mission to expand access to better incomes by aligning the incentives of the school and the student.

Austen also explains why he believes a coder’s soft skills are a bigger selling point to potential employers than their technical abilities.
