In the fierce battle for talent, we have a winner: Google.

The search giant claimed the top spot in LinkedIn's first-ever release of its Top Attractors list, which includes a ranking of the 40 most sought-after employers in America.

LinkedIn used its extensive data from more than 433 million members to craft the list, which was created using data on job applications, views on companies' career pages, member engagement and retention of new hires.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, tech companies, known for high growth coupled with lucrative perks (hello, free food!), snagged 45 percent of the top spots in the U.S.

Google

With millions of applications each year, Google can afford to be picky. For the lucky few who do make the cut, Google's perks are second to none. They include everything from on-site coding and cooking classes to massage services and death benefits.

And there's even more good news for prospective applicants: Those infamous brainteaser interview questions have gone out the window.

Salesforce

The enterprise cloud computing company consistently ranks among the best places to work. It offers uncapped commissions, six days off per year to volunteer, $100 in monthly wellness reimbursements, dog-friendly offices and more.

Facebook

Facebook has come a long way from its Harvard dorm room roots and now employs more than 13,000 workers. Perks at its North American offices include cash to help with newborn expenses, transportation support and what seems like a start-up prerequisite — free meals and snacks.

Apple

Apple has a number of roles available at the company, including corporate, Apple Store and at-home advisor positions. CEO Tim Cook recently highlighted the company's 65 percent increase in female hires, a notable jump in the male-dominated tech world.

Amazon

Amazon has a reputation for being a demanding workplace with a heightened emphasis on efficiency and relentless focus on improving the customer experience. The e-commerce retailer recently committed to hiring 25,000 veterans and military spouses during the next five years.
