A Dive into Stack Overflow Jobs Search

I tried the search but found the tech tag didn’t really help much. Many job descriptions list lots of tech without emphasis, some are even not really relevant. It will be much better if you can put some weights to the tech keywords in job description:

  • a simple list of keywords in one sentence often doesn’t mean much, especially when they are general tech like java, matlab, instead of specific framework like react.
  • The tech appear in the main text of description can be the major requirement and should have much higher importance. Though it’s often not as obvious as tech tags, so you probably need to use some analysis for this.
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
