Jeff Career history
Bezos worked at ‘Wall Street’ for eight years after graduating from Princeton. The bankers were very impressed by his work.
“Bezos was unusual not only for his balanced intellect–he could handle complex logic as well as articulate his thinking–but also for the overall package: smart, creative, personable,”
However, he left for Seattle after hearing about rising internet use and a Supreme Court ruling that online retailers did not have to pay sales tax in states where they are not physically present. It was a bold move from someone with a good job at a hedge fund, but he realized he would rather try something bold and fail while the internet was young than to miss out.
He gathered some start-up cash from family and friends and started Amazon out of his garage. His “pathologically happy and infectiously enthusiastic attitude” won support from the employees. The company began as a bookseller in 1995. By 1996, it was on the front page of The Wall Street Journal. It survived the dotcom bubble and 20 years of competitive rivalry to gain its current position.
Bezos never paid himself well. Even till date, his annual cash salary isn’t even six figures. However, his 87 million shares of Amazon (19 percent) makes him a billionaire. But, like most technology entrepreneurs, Bezos isn’t focused on just one thing. In 2000, he created human spaceflight startup Blue Origin with the aim of helping, “anybody to go into space.”
A well-kept secret for a number of years, he went public in 2006 and, in 2013, he was reported to be in space travel discussions with Sir Richard Branson of Virgin. Also in 2013, Bezos (rather than Amazon) acquired The Washington Post newspaper for $196 billion.
Bezos’ lowest salary is only £14,000 more than the average Facebook intern, according to Business Insider. Having always had an interest in science, as a boy he created an electric alarm to keep his younger siblings out of his bedroom. He was so clever that he used a screwdriver to dismantle his crib as a toddler, according to Achievement.org.
