About First Code

First Code Academy is empowering Asia’s next generation to become creators of technology through teaching kids from age 6 to 18 about programming, design and entrepreneurship. Since 2013, we have taught 4,000+ students in various Asian cities and we continue to expand our global presence. 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!

About the Role

We are looking for students who are passionate about software engineering, have experience in tutoring pre-teens or teens (other subjects are okay too), and have an entrepreneurial & startup mindset. We have openings in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Shanghai.

Why teach with us?

This unique opportunity allows you to:

"Coding + Children = My passion. First Code Academy has impacted me in such a positive manner that just two months of my time here has helped me discover this. As an instructor, I get to play with robots and learn new technology everyday and then try to pass over the skill sets to the kids. Watching them use their boundless imagination put to the test creating new apps and websites stuns me every single time and has made me realise how much potential lies within each and every child to use coding to change the world. It has been a great experience for me working (having fun) at FCA, interacting with the kids on a daily basis and learning from them as well. The environment set up for them at FCA is absolutely brilliant - they are given full authority to build whatever they want and use failure as a stepping stone to success which lines with our motto - "Done is better than perfect.""
