Just noticed this on the UK site.

If I go to http://careers.stackoverflow.com/uk/jobs/location/london, I see jobs for London, UK. enter image description here

If I click the Company Pages tab... enter image description here

my location context has been changed to London, Ontario...

Hmm, I wonder if they outsource the location finder to Apple? They should totally drop that and try jQuery. – Cody Gray Aug 14 '13 at 12:50
Careers seems to be haunted by such geostuffs. Surely the devs themselves must be sick enough of this to do it once and for all. – Grant Thomas Aug 14 '13 at 12:57

Fixed. Thanks for letting us know.

Problem was: it worked on http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/location/london but not on http://careers.stackoverflow.com/uk/jobs/location/london. So "/uk" was the troublemaker ... some url parsing didn't account for those extra 3 characters, and the location became "on/london" after clicking on the tab. :/

Now the real question of course is: why are there no developer jobs in London, Ontario?
