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.

    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. Aug 14, 2013 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?
