Our Mission

First Code Academy is empowering Asia’s next generation to become creators of technology by teaching kids age 6 to 18 about programming, design and entrepreneurship. Since 2013, we have taught thousands of students in various Asian cities and are continuing to expand our global presence.

Our Culture

Done is Better Than Perfect

Creative and with a bias towards action, we embrace ambiguity and are motivated to explore new ways to do things, better.


A Beginner's Mindset
All in our team learn to code, and we live and breath the spirit of learning and self improvement. Through our e-book & Kindle program, everyone reads for free, share articles and books frequently on Slack.


Stay Lean, Stay Humble
We take "get your hands dirty" seriously. Everyone takes out the trash, fixes broken photo frames and takes turn at the reception. Once, we took turns painting our white board walls as a team ahead of our busy Summer camp season, what a fun workout!


We believe that it takes a team to build something big; if you have a love for technology and want to make a meaningful impact in next generation’s education, join us now!
