Hamilton left McKinsey to become chief of staff at Denver-based coding boot camp startup Galvanize in 2018 and helped negotiate its $165 million sale to publicly traded online education provider K12 Inc., now called Stride Learning, in January 2020. He was named CEO of Galvanize this March, managing its staff of 200 employees. Galvanize helps its students become software engineers after 12-week sessions held remotely, with plans to restart an in-person option in 2022. The average starting salary for its 10,000 graduates is $80,000, and it offers pay-later income sharing options for students who need to defer tuition. As CEO, Hamilton is trying to expand its corporate training programs and sell straight to businesses and the U.S. military.
