"The entire Lambda School experience really blew us away. We set incredibly lofty goals for any engineer to accomplish in a month, and both of our Lambda School fellows crushed their goals and then some. Not only were the engineers we worked with incredibly skilled at the Node/React stack, they were also incredibly hard workers, often burning the midnight oil to make the magic happen and hit all their goals. Finally, whether intentional by Lambda School or not, the fellows we worked with had great attitudes and were a wonderful culture fit! I can’t recommend Lambda School enough, and we’d do it again in a heartbeat.”

What hiring managers think
We recently made an engineering hire through Lambda
School's fellow program and LOVED it. We got to work with fellow and see in real-time how they stack up to other full-time engineers on the team. Compared to University candidates, this fellow greatly outperformed.
Ish Baid
CEO, Virtually
The selective admissions process means that all Lambda School students are the type of hire everyone wants in their organizations - someone who is motivated, eager, and passionate.
John Vormbaum
Head of Recruiting, Clover
We're very grateful to the Lambda Fellows program for connecting us to potential hires! It was so much easier and more effective to get to know a candidate by working together for a month instead of trying to guess at her skills from interviews and past experiences. As an early-stage, very lean startup, the Lambda Fellows program gave us the perfect environment to get to know a new candidate risk-free.
Jay Gopalan
CEO and Founder, Openbook
The big difference between Lambda School and bootcamps is that Lambda School affords their students more opportunity to learn hands-on and in teams and intentionally diversifies their experience. Lambda School does a better job preparing engineers for the real world.

Cameron MacArthur
CEO, AI Insurance
The Lambda Fellows program was instrumental for getting us through our pre-seed milestones. As an early-stage startup, having risk-free, month-long experiences with the fellows not only allowed us to build trust in our engineers without the worry of lost capital, but also helped us find engineers with the skills we needed much more easily than we would have through traditional recruiting methods. We hope to continue to partner with the program for seasons to come.

FAQ
How quickly can I try a Fellow?
We have new cohorts starting every Monday.
Do I get to pick the Fellow?
We’ve spent over 100+ hours with our students and feel confident in what we know about their skills/capabilities so we will select a student for you based on the project you’ve got in mind. You can also browse recent Lambda graduates and let us know if you're interested in someone in particular.
Is this a paid program?
Lambda School will pay the Fellow during the 4 week trial.
Are there any costs for the company?
If you do not hire the fellow, there is no cost for this program.  If you hire the fellow, you will pay a fee to Lambda that is equal to what Lambda paid to the fellow during their 4 week trial at your company.
