Unfortunately there is no "contact info" for the vacancy I was looking for (Sysadmin in Switzerland) and the same happens to all the others I have checked, therefore no way to apply. Check for yourself...

I have not seen any job finding tool that let you search using that filter, and I think that on year 2012 that's kind of incredible.

Just feedback
I think this is good feedback. I currently work in a job at a distance from home. And it's system administration, which is usually a much tougher job to work at a distance (but I have in fact successfully replaced one distro with another entirely by remote access, and this wasn't a virtual machine). If I end up having to look for new employment, I would certainly like to do the same thing (the distance part ... I could do some programming, too).

I think the biggest problem with this Jobs board is that it is not run by someone who has a user experience passion that we can talk directly with. It is outsourced. And that's probably the only option available, as running one inhouse at LQ is going to start out empty and that's (now days, anyway) very, very hard to grow from.

I do have many ideas to make a great jobs website user experience, and have yet seen none of them actually deployed at any site.

Look at the Job Function menu. All IT jobs are lumped together. Most IT people despise this because it doesn't help. IT jobs should be broken down. At least this site did allow multiple-click on these (some don't and that makes them worse). LQ readers are generally all going to be either hobbyists who have fun with Linux, small business owners running their own computers, academics, or IT professionals.

Programmer jobs need to have choices of programming language and operating systems in many cases. Networking jobs need choices of the equipment and systems they are interested in.

And these searches need to be based on positive matches, not negative matches. On many job boards, string search is the only available tool. But it does not work. I can put "linux" in as a keyword, and it would match a job that requires 10 years Windows administration experience and just mentions "knowledge of Linux a plus". That's just wrong.

And then there is the "work at a distance issue". If the job form at least included that option, managers might start thinking about it.

Now if only these details about how the whole site architecture should be like could reach the passionate people at jobthread.com, maybe we might see the first great job board in the future. But for now, their model seems to be more about taking a legacy job board design and opening it for integration at other sites.

Can you display a column for the country flags from where applicants are eligible to apply?

Thanks for the feedback. We don't have any specific plans to implement this feature, but will keep it in mind as a future enhancement.

That's what I mean, how can the website even KNOWS to which countries I am or not eligible to work? I currently cannot apply for jobs outside Brazil, however, I am a German citizen and therefore it shouldn't be an issue. The same happens to many other people.

IMHO, I think this "feature" of blocking applications outside the country should just be disable.

To my understanding it is something that the job poster has requested (and it's a per job setting they don't have to enable). I'll pass the suggestion along though.

Nice, but I cannot apply for jobs in Switzerland, for example. I am currently living in Brazil, however, as a German citizen I am eligible to work in Switzerland,

since programming may be done remotely, is it possible that someone from an abroad country apply for a job in the site?

It's up to the individual job poster whether they would like to allow/accept remote or telecommuting applications.
