"Every day at First Code I work on a variety of different tasks including product development, teacher training, parent communication, and of course, teaching! I feel incredibly lucky to be able to combine my passion in technology and the endless inspiration from the kids we teach. When I’m not at office, you can likely find me trying out new recipes in my kitchen, reading a book or doing TRX in a park."
"I love building things from nothing to something. I am now focusing on Operations, People Operations, and Software. The laughter in our classrooms and the confidence in our kids' eyes really got me. First Code is not just a startup or a coding school, it is a mission and a lifestyle. We're creating a place where team members are excited to get together and students are thrilled to come to classes. We're full of dreams, energies, and determination. If I'm not at First Code, you might find me at home coding or reading and running outdoor."
"Coming from a technology background, I believe the technology era has come and it will grow rapidly. Being a father, I believe the best I can provide to my child is to open her up to the technology world. It is amazing how FCA combines the next generation and technology, guiding the kids to become creators with technology. When I am not at work, I enjoy reading. I am a huge book lover."
"First Code’s culture is fun and enjoyable - we're just like family. I love the fact that everyone here is so open and supportive of each other. What really puts a smile on my face is seeing the kids showcase their work. You'd be amazed at what they can accomplish! In my spare time, I’m most likely playing basketball, shopping or chilling out with my family and friends.”
"Being an instructor at First Code is a fun and rewarding experience. With its amazing team and students, the First Code family is one that supports, encourages and learns from each another. The students bring so much energy and excitement into the classroom, and seeing them apply new and personal ideas to their technological creations, sometimes even beyond the classroom, is truly inspiring. In my free time, I enjoy reading fantasy novels, knitting, solving puzzles and eating chocolate."
"Ever since my first encounter with coding in my freshman year in university, I have always been amazed by its power. I have always wondered - “why start coding so late?”, until I got to know First Code. Teaching young people to code? Brilliant idea! I am so jealous of what kids can learn nowadays - it would have been one of my favorite after-school activities! Now here I am - in a young team full of energetic and supportive people. Being in First Code is not about "working" at all - I learn, grow as a person and inspire the future generations. Everything has been so rewarding and enjoyable here. What's the best part? My hobby is now part of my job!"
"Having experienced first hand how technology is able to amaze, inspire, and have an impact on people, I feel privileged to be able to teach the next generation and provide the same experience to them. Seeing the satisfaction in students when they finish their project and the excitement to share and amaze others is very rewarding. Outside of First Code, I will be trying out and learning from the latest games, and spending time with family and friends."
"Rarely do you get to work alongside a group of positive, talented and motivated individuals all striving towards the same goal. First Code Academy is truly a special place! It’s unbelievable to see what kids as young as 4 years old can create nowadays. During my spare time, I enjoy fitness dancing, reading, and watching shows on Netflix."
"Now learning coding in my spare time, I believe in the value of coding in teaching young children that the sky is the limit. It's wonderful to see students proudly showcasing their work and staying back after class, excited to be working on more coding projects. Outside of First Code, I'm seeking Singapore's best coffee, binging on Netflix or browsing through new productivity apps and tech news."
“Working at First Code Academy has been rewarding. I am motivated by students who are keen to learn and to explore what they can create with different learning tools, both in the lesson and outside the classroom. I am also grateful to have a supportive team which inspires me to be more knowledgeable, professional but nevertheless, empathetic and kind.”
“I had an appreciation of coding and computers, particularly automatic processes and robotics since I was a child, but I wish I could start coding earlier. When I am not learning new programming and coding concepts, you can usually find me looking up movie and book reviews.”
"Working at First Code is such a precious experience, I get to fully utilise my marketing skills for children which I never thought of! Outside of First Code, I love going hiking and dancing with my family and friends!"
“It is amazing how much working at First Code inspired me. From working with team members to parents recognitions, it has been an amazing journey! I wish I could start it earlier. Outside of First Code, I like to munch on popcorns and watch Netflix with my family and friends.”
"To me, First Code is a very special place where culture and talents thrive. Never have I been working in a place that is so young and energetic. It is my pleasure to be able to serve such a unique group of individuals."
"The vision of First Code really touched me and I believe this is the right place for kids to learn and have fun with technology. Seeing how driven our kids learning in class, I am truly impressed by their innovative ideas and it motivates me to go further in my work and outside of work to learn coding!"
"Technology has always been my best friend. I can't imagine a day without being surrounded by technology. I really envy the kids nowadays who get to learn coding especially when they are young. I feel very happy to be a part of First Code to empower the kids to learn coding. I am now picking up coding skills during my spare time."
