sort by functionality on at least http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/tag/* pages could be improved in a number of ways. It could allow sorting by:
Work remotely & Offers relocation options
Type of role (Support, Developer - There would seem to be some categorisation obtained from employers, if the
Joel Test Scoreis being made available to developer positions)
Joel Test Score
Reverse order of all sort by options
Perhaps by a results parsed list of different sets of tags
Location (alphabetically, or based on browser shared location/profile set location/GeoIP location).
I realise there is the ability to specify some of the above (including work location, and distance away from that central point), in the search pane off to the right hand side of the page, which produces a results page that exposes the ability to sort by proximity, but:
A) I can't see why the
/jobs/tag/x pages can't have the same functionality as 'keyword' search results
B) This proximity search could also be improved by stating distance from searched "where", next to "city, state", with an linked to and/or hover-bubble map of the location or possibly travel directions from "where" to the work location c/o maps.google.com
P.S Is there any UX/UI tester positions on offer by StackExchange, that don't require physical presence in NY?
