EC2 engineers’ base salaries went up 18 percent from $100,000 to $118,000.
Starting salaries for technology professionals in the U.S. are on the rise from 2012 to 2013, according to new research conducted by Mondo, a leading technology resources provider.
"The intense demand for highly-skilled technology professionals is resulting in significant increases in the salaries for those professionals with expertise in the areas of mobile, Big Data, cloud computing and user engagement skills," said Michael Kirven, founder and CEO of Mondo. "And, companies across the U.S. are reversing the trend of outsourcing skilled technology labor overseas, and now understand that skilled IT workers that are located within their innovation centers can give them a competitive edge -- which is driving demand here in the U.S for technology professionals."
Kirven added, "Looking to 2014, we see a spike in demand for HTML5 developers with salaries predicted to range from $97,000 to $135,000."
According to Mondo's research, the following technology positions have experienced significant salary growth from 2012 to 2013.
