SEATTLE, July 15 (UPI) -- E-commerce giant Amazon's employees were found to be the most attractive tech workers, beating employees from Facebook, Apple, Google and Microsoft.

The findings were released by Hinge, a New York-based social networking and dating app that matches young professionals. When shown a profile users can swipe right to indicate a desire to connect or swipe left if they're not interested, much like popular dating app Tinder.

"Employees at four of the five tech companies are all more sought after than non-techie Hinge users," the company said.

The one exception was Apple, whose employees were 0.2 percent below the average attractiveness of Hinge users.

Amazon employees were seen to be the most attractive with users swiping right on their profiles 14 percent more than the average, followed by Microsoft at 8 percent more than average, Google at 7 percent more and Facebook at 2.3 percent.

The report also collected data on the pickiness of these employees. Facebook employees were found to be the pickiest of the five companies.

Karen Fein, Hinge's marketing director, said that study was only intended to raise the conversation when it comes to dating apps.

"We're saying that there are other details that matter to determine how interested you might be in another person," she told MarketWatch. "It's not just about looks. ... Where you work actually impacts the way others perceive you."
