As a regular security audit, we wanted to generate a report of who has admin rights on SharePoint Online. So, Here is the PowerShell to get all SharePoint Online Administrators:

#Connect to Azure AD
$RoleName="SharePoint Service Administrator"

#Get the Role
$Role = Get-AzureADDirectoryRole | Where {$_.DisplayName -eq $RoleName}

#Get All Members of the Role
Get-AzureADDirectoryRoleMember -ObjectId $Role.ObjectId | Select DisplayName, UserPrincipalName

This script would give a prompt to enter your credentials. I assume you have been assigned the global administrator role in Office 365. Here is my other post on adding new SharePoint Online Administrators in Office 365: How to Add New SharePoint Online Administrator?
