Does "or a researcher" mean "or pays a researcher" here?

Amazon created a site called Mechanical Turk in 2005 to enable the crowdsourcing of work via the internet—whether for a company that pays random Web surfers to weigh in on a new logo design or a researcher who is conducting a social science experiment.

No. It means, 'or for a researcher...'.
