As a employer, I am interested to hire developers via StackOverflow Career. But I am not too sure whether my country (Malaysia) has enough developers hanging around at stackoverflow; so I am reluctant to pay for the listing.

Is there anyway I can view the count ( yup, just the count) of candidates by country without first paying?

If you go to the employer homepage, you can enter certain criteria in the entry fields under search CVs, which will then display the number of candidates that meet those criteria. In Malaysia, it looks like there are 12 candidates currently.

Also note there is a no-questions-asked 90-day money-back guarantee, so if you don't find a suitable candidate, all you have to do is request a refund.

Not too sure how did you get it; but once I click search at this page, it takes me to billing page. So annoying! – Graviton Feb 22 '11 at 6:52
if you don't submit the form on that page (or the one @waiwai933 posted), the number of candidates on the right hand side of the page will be updated via AJAX as you enter criteria. It's a bit slow though and the indicator that it's doing anything is a bit subtle... – Jon Feb 22 '11 at 7:27
