The Highest-Paying Jobs At Google [RANKED]

Google loves its engineers. So it’s not much of a surprise that software engineers are some of the best-paid employees at the company.

But there are a bunch of other roles at Google — and a lot of them have salaries that are competitive with Google’s bread and butter, according to salary data we pulled from Glassdoor.

Salary data on Glassdoor is based on anonymous salary reports that were voluntarily shared by both current and recent employees.

20. Associate, online sales and operations

Salary: $US50,200

With engineers in charge at Google, sales and account managers are more or less at the bottom of the ladder. Associates are at the lowest rung, so they have the smallest salary.

19. AdWords associate

Salary: $US56,400

Just above the traditional associate role is an AdWords associate -- one of Google's largest ad platforms. These salespeople still make half of what most engineers make, though.

18. Account manager

Salary: $71,080

Account managers handle sales and marketing relationships with specific, bigger customers. A big chunk of Google's sales staff is based in New York.

15. Database administrator

Salary: $100,327

Google has an enormous amount of data -- and has to access it regularly to keep its search results up-to-date and accurate. While these administrators aren't crunching away on new Google products, they're a key part of the team.

14. Financial analyst

Salary: $103,244

The search giant needs financial analysts to make sure its reporting is accurate and it knows exactly how much money it's making with specific products.

12. User interface designer

Google employees with the Android Gingerbread

Salary: $105,474

The UI designers are tasked with making all of Google's products beautiful.

10. User experience researcher

Salary: $112,536

While UI designers work on how the product looks, user experience (or UX) researchers make sure Google knows how its customers feel about the products. That's how Google figures out which designs are working and which designs aren't.

9. Product marketing manager

Salary: $118,217

Product marketing managers determine what customers want and need out of a company's products. It's a little more research-heavy, and a key part of what makes Google tick.

8. Software engineer

Salary: $118,994

Software engineers are Google's bread and butter. They make sure everything gets done and they crunch out code for all of Google's products, like search and Android.

7. Sales engineer

Salary: $119,603

Sales engineers help Google's customers solve key technical issues with whatever product they're deploying. This is especially important for companies that deploy Google's apps, like Gmail.

6. Site reliability engineer

Salary: $124,194

You can literally lose thousands, if not tens of thousands, of dollars if your site is down -- even for a few seconds. Google isn't making money if its search pages aren't running smoothly.

5. Software research engineer

Salary: $126,916

Google also employs engineers to research new projects that might turn into significant Google products. Think something along the lines of Google Glass.

3. Research engineer

Salary: $140,039

Google also employs a bunch of research engineers. This might be more toward the hardware side of the company.
