According to Wall Street Journal, demand for Flash developers keeps surging recently. It’s a refreshing reminder that those who have marked Flash as a dying technology are quite wrong indeed. Top full-time Flash engineers can now command more than $150,000 a year in salary, says Stuart Liroff, a headhunter at GreeneSearch recruiting firm. That compares with $50,000 to $80,000 a year three years ago, several entrepreneurs say. With the rise of online social gaming start-ups such as Zynga Game Network Inc. and others—many of which make online games that involve Flash technology—demand for Flash engineers has suddenly surged.
