Michelle S

Co-founder & CEO

Michelle believes every person should be empowered to use technology to express themselves and bring their ideas to life. She started First Code Academy to provide hands-on learning opportunities in software development in Asia. Michelle held various roles in high growth startups in Silicon Valley, including Buffer, a tool that helps people share smarter on social media and Bump Technologies (acquired by Google in 2013). Previously, she attended the inaugural class of Hackbright Academy, an intensive program in San Francisco on software development. Born and raised in Hong Kong, she graduated from University of Chicago and began her career at Goldman Sachs.

"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."

General Manager

Having studied in Communication and Technology made Chi believe that the future of the world relies heavily on these two topics. In order to create a greater impact on society, Chi found a way to understand global cultures and diversities by exploring different corners of the world. After spending 2 years being a merchandiser in China and sales in New York, she is now at First Code empowering a better tomorrow through innovative education.

“Joining First Code fulfills two of my dreams. First of all, I get to work and grow with a team of passionate teammates who come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Secondly, I am able to create a positive impact to Taiwan, my beloved hometown, by bringing in the world latest tech trends and perspectives. I believe that a happy work life is the foundation of a happy life. You can find me either watching movies in my room or running around in nature when I’m not in the office.”
