Who is Amazon’s highest paid employee?

It is a bit naive to ask about the highest paid employee at Amazon or other companies, because compensation is far more meaningful than pay. Jeff Bezos’ pay is $81,840/year. That is a negligible sum however compared to his overall compensation that made him the wealthiest man in the country. “Highest pay” is consequently necessarily a lower position. As you can also see in Garrick Saito’s answer, several officers of Amazon are paid higher than Jeff, including Andrew Jassy, Brian Olsavsky, Jeffrey Blackburn and Jeffrey Wilke. The highest pay among these is $175,000, which all but Olsavsky received in 2018. But that’s small change next to Jassy’s stock award in 2018 of nearly $20 Million, and Wilke’s 2016 award of nearly $33 Million.

There are quite a few executives earning even less than Jeff Bezos as far as “pay.” Elon Musk earns only $1/year as CEO of Tesla, as do Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry page. Make no mistake about it, they are not missing out, but the real money isn’t in pay but rather in stock-based compensation.
