Could you include the jobs' company name and location (city, state or coordinates)?

  • It's already in the title... {JobTitle} at {Company} ({Location}) – Dean Ward May 22 '15 at 9:34
  • Yes, it is. However, I feel like a job's company name and location are important enough to warrant their own property. It would make that job representation more useful. Say you want to do something with that data; you'd have to parse out the location from the title, which granted, is not a super big deal, but what happens if you decide to change the format of the title to something like {jobTitle} - {Location} ({Company})? Whatever clients depend on the old format are now broken. – jarz May 23 '15 at 1:15

I've updated the feed so that a single item looks like this:
