Summary List Placement
It’s not only tech jobs that fetch high salaries at tech companies. The sales team brings in the money, and the employees who make it happen are critical to a business’ success.
Amazon Web Services, for example, pays salaries as high as $160,000 per year for jobs on its sales team in Seattle, according to a Business Insider analysis of federal data.
American companies have to disclose salaries when they apply for visas on behalf of current or prospective foreign workers. The Office of Foreign Labor Certification publishes the salaries every year.
We analyzed the data for more than 14,000 active foreign-worker visas in Washington state in 2020 to find the highest tech sales salaries among workers in the Seattle area (notably, the data covers annual base salary not total compensation, which can include bonuses or stock awards).
