Driven. Passionate. Down To Earth. Meet Our Team.

We started Sigma School because we believe that the current education system is broken.

Students are struggling to get jobs and struggling to pay back their student loans, yet employers are still struggling to hire good talents.

There is a massive, growing tech talent-skill mismatch in the world right now and almost ALL educators are not held accountable to help their students secure jobs.

They simply have no incentive to ensure their
graduates get hired – they get paid regardless.

We're a squad of education-focused hustlers who
know what life's like on the other side,
and we're on a mission to fix this.
passionate people

Our vision: To accelerate the world’s progression to have coders in every household, empowering individuals of all ages and backgrounds to create, innovate, and thrive in the digital world.

We believe there is a better approach to education.

By innovating on the learning model to cut cost, we effectively enable ourselves focus on what matters - getting our students jobs, while doing it at scale to enable us to invest in untapped talents to unlock a whole new pool of competent talents for the world.

By sharing the risk behind getting a job with our students, we effectively align the incentives of the school with the incentives of our students – and we all win only when our graduates succeed.

What makes us different?

We are focused on innovating on the education model by reducing costs while investing in successfully matching our students to real jobs.


100% free if you don't get a job.


Curriculum changes directly based on company/industry needs. Learn multiple programming languages and Computer Science fundamentals, through working on real projects with other students around the world.


Learn by pair programming and collaborating on group projects, project reviews & career guidance preparation with other students in real time, just as you would with colleagues of a distributed team in a real company.


Students work with accountability partners and large, global network of support from their peers, which also helps them learn remote workflows and acquire the collaboration and communication skills necessary to join a global/remote role.


Our dedicated careers team will work with you to improve their portfolio, resume and online presence, and get ready for job interviews. Then, we help them find and apply to competitive jobs worldwide and negotiate job offers.

Lifetime Access.

Unlimited Support.

Receive support from our dedicated Student Success Team, mentors, a personal career coach, and more (for a period of 18 months!).

Meet our founder


Deric Yee

Founder & CEO
After my studies in the UK a few years ago, I was exposed to the world of venture capital & tech startups. I saw how bad the shortage of tech talents were, but didn't put much thought to it until I came back to Malaysia.

I quit my previous role to focus fully on learning to code. It was really difficult and I didn't have much options because I couldn't afford bootcamps or university.

In my 6 months of learning, I have managed to assist my friends who graduated with a degree in IT on their technical assessments and landed multiple software projects.

Students are struggling to pay back university debt and struggling to get hired, yet employers are struggling so much to hire good talents.

That's when I realised how broken the system is. There is a massive, growing tech talent-skill mismatch in the world right now and almost ALL educators are not held accountable to help their students secure jobs.

I started Sigma School to change that. I'm on a mission to help people land jobs regardless of their backgrounds & redefine the education system to allow us to invest in untapped talent to unlock a whole new pool of competent talents for the world.
