Online marketplace Flipkart, with 13,900 employees, beat Amazon to emerge as the most sought-after employer where Indian professionals want to work and stay, according to a new LinkedIn report on Wednesday.

Internet companies dominate the top 10 spots in the list as Amazon moved to second spot from fourth last year, OYO is at the third position, up from 10th last year and Paytm is fourth.

The LinkedIn "2019 Top Companies" report this year features new entrants including homegrown Internet and IT companies, Swiggy, Zomato and Freshworks. "Interestingly this year, half the companies are new entrants on the list, including IT giants such as Tata Consultancy Services and IBM that showcase the changing job and hiring landscape," Adith Charlie, India Managing Editor, LinkedIn, said in a statement.

While India's IT giant Tata Consultancy Services has debuted at seventh position, Swiggy and Zomato were ranked sixth and eighth respectively and Uber, another new entrant, took the fifth spot.

One97 Communications (Paytm) came fourth. Alphabet (Google) was ranked ninth and Reliance Industries 10th.

The annual ranking by the Microsoft-owned professional networking platform highlights the 25 most sought-after companies in the country by professionals.

LinkedIn said it analysed billions of data points generated by the network's over 610 million members around the world to come up with a blended score used to rank the winners in each geography.
