Restricting searches on Careers does not appear to restrict to the requested geographic area like it used to. I have attempted to search for the city by name and ZIP code, as well as with and without keywords.

The keywords filter works fine, whether or not I provide a location.

These filters worked the last time I used the search feature on the site about a week ago.

Here are two screenshots showing my attempting searches:

Location restricted search with no keywords showing no filtering

Location restricted search with keywords showing filtering by keywords only

In case it helps narrow it down, the XHR request for this search went to http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs?searchTerm=react&location=80112&range=20&distanceUnits=Miles&ajax=1 which looks reasonable to me.

    Curious, do you have any of the check marks in that section ticked? : Allows Remote - Offers Relocation - Offers Visa Sponsorship – Catija Dec 20 '15 at 0:12
  • @Catija: Nope. All checkboxes are cleared. – Conspicuous Compiler Dec 20 '15 at 0:13

    That's odd. Works fine for me. Results for zip code 80112 gives only 28 hits. : http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs?location=80112&range=20&distanceUnits=Miles – Catija Dec 20 '15 at 0:14

    Possibly related: I got an automatic e-mail last night about jobs within 60 miles of my city, which I had previously opted in for, but the jobs listed were all over the world (by which I mean mostly nowhere near me). – Pops Dec 20 '15 at 4:13

    Also see: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/271463/… This bug seems to affect all filtering. – CraigTP Dec 20 '15 at 11:18

Thanks for the report, Conspicuous Compiler. I've just deployed a fix to job search that should make your results a lot better. Sorry for the bug.
