Who Made a Dollar?

Let's first state the obvious: Yes, there are a few billionaires on this list. So it's safe to say that no one mentioned in our ranking of the lowest-paid tech CEOs is struggling to make rent. And even though it's trendy for tech chiefs to take $1 salaries, they often make up for the low cash payout in generous amounts of stock.

Still, in a tech world that's come to expect big numbers, be they sky-high valuations or over-the-top paydays, it's refreshing to look at those at the bottom of the list when it comes to total compensation. Of the 10 CEOs in this ranking, more than half of their companies outperformed the S&P 500 index's total return. (Are raises in order?)

See who made the list, and which tech boss took home a buck in total compensation.
