Top 10 Highest-Paying Jobs at Google

With Google’s recent rebranding to Alphabet, there’s been many questions tied to the company’s future. From its internal operations to the future of certain branches of the company, outsiders (and those within the company), have been wondering what the next phase of Alphabet will look like. Despite all of these issues, it’s unlikely that it’ll affect the company’s position as the most-demanded company to work for.

While most college graduates still vie for a spot at the company, which positions at Alphabet are actually the most financially beneficial? Business Insider recently looked at Google salary data from Glassdoor and put together the top 20 highest-paying jobs at the company. Unsurprisingly, many of these highest-paid positions are engineering roles at the tech giant; however, there are a few exceptions to that. For instance, a communications manager position at Alphabet can be poised to make an average salary of $190,846.
