Engineering demand

Good to see some demand for engineers.  It should help to offset some of the other industries that are reducing.

In just a few short years all these Flash engineers will have fulfilled all their goals and will then be expendable.  Same old...

@zeeglen, you mean it could just be a flash in the pan?

@zeeglen: That is more than unlikely because the supply and demand problem would forever exist in this market, and as long as that exists, engineers won't find trouble in finding jobs.

Well, figuratively... ;)

Exactly, fortunately the memory devices remain quite stable in our computers and other electronic devices.

Really a good news for engineers who are entering the market with some good understanding of the flash products.

@tty2: This would increase even more now that other forms of technology are coming on board (that includes the Internet of Things).

Wow, that didn't take long.  Was there really the demand or was it all overbooking?

@daleste: What do flash engineers really need in terms of qualifications? Can engineers who have graduated from Computer Science and Electrical Engineering departments be equally eligible for the posts of Flash Engineer?

Still around 10 or so firmware related positions posted at Micron...

Micron is currently the 4th largest semiconductor manufacturer in the world, after Intel, Samsung, and QUALCOMM. The fact that they are running wild in the SSD market is quite a shock since there are many engineering talents around the world, some more qualified than the other. I think Micron should hire off other semiconductor companies that are less in size to them.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
