Hi everyone! I’m Carolyn Conway, and I’m on the admissions team at Y Combinator, where I do everything from software engineering and data science to application review and interviewing founders.
I started out my career as a software engineer at YesGraph, which was backed by Y Combinator and then acquired by Lyft. I spent multiple years building machine learning systems at Lyft as a senior software engineer.
I graduated from Yale with a degree in linguistics, and later attended a bootcamp to break into tech.
Ask me anything about Y Combinator’s admissions process, non-traditional career paths, early stage startups, and more!
