    Sure, "bad" can be a subjective opinion. But the reason I called it "bad" is because one is unable to see a job description, or someone's profile. This is the primary reason for this site to exist: to read someone's resume, or a job posting, and this doesn't work. Hence I conclude this site it badly designed.

    "StackOverflow Careers" is perfectly accessible to unregistered users, and I'd prefer if Samsung have used this one.

    Well, you can check it by opening the job links form the article in private mode of your browser.

    I don't think it maximises their revenue. E.g. I don't even have an account there.

    To be completely honest, I can guess the reason site is so popular: it's because this is the only international job postings site that everyone knows. Nowadays that there's also StackOverflow Careers, I expect LinkedIn to slowly phase out.
