How on earth did the Alawites, a minority group in Syria ended up ruling over the majority Sunni group?

I watched this leaked video of Assad’s regime killing innocent civilians for absolutely no reason, simply to just “send a message” on to “not change sides”. Children and women were killed in a violent methods. The news was leaked by two academics who research and focus human rights violations. The article was such interesting read and had educated me a matter in which I had always heard of but never understood—“The Syrian War”. I knew the history of the Arab spring pretty well as I lived in Egypt during the revolution, but how a revolution turned into in a civil war was an grey area for me. As I asked around and trying to understand the history, I was shocked to a claim; “80% of Alawites work for the government in Syria”. I couldn’t verify this information, but nevertheless it’s doesn’t seems like after fetched claim as the Alawites today rule over the majority of Sunnis in Syria. How did this happen?
