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

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.

Meet our founders


Deric Yee

Co-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.

Ming Yu

Co-founder & CTO
A few years ago, I quit my job and learned to code on my own. Although it took me 1 full year of full-time learning, but I still did it. My first job paid me a higher salary than what most fresh-grad computer science graduates were making.

That's when I realised something was terribly off with it & decided to branch into education to work alongside my co-founder, Deric to disrupt how education is done. I believe it's about time.

Techie at heart, actively involved in on multiple software projects, tech startups and wholly focused on growing the tech community here in Asia.
