The purpose of these questions is to get a sense of your personality and perspective, the way you communicate and think. Feel free to interpret questions broadly and be creative.

Think of this section as the replacement for the cover letter.

Tell us about a newsroom or area of journalism that could benefit from Hearken. How and why? *
(Ideally, we would like an example that draws from your personal experience.)
Your answer
Everyone on this team got into journalism because they wanted to change the industry for the better, whether that’s fixing a broken hiring system or moving forward as technology evolves. What is one way you’re motivated to change the field, or one issue that you’re passionate about fixing? *
Note: We're not looking for lightning bolts of genius — just want to know what makes you tick!
Your answer
What experience would you like to highlight for us that could contribute to your strength as a coworker and consultant? *
These can be experiences obtained through your professional experience or personal life.
Your answer
Tell us about an ongoing system or process you've developed to solve a problem in your life, workplace, or community. *
(Can be as simple as creating a routine for packing your lunch in advance. Just make sure you tell us what the problem was and how you solved it.)
Your answer
Tell us about a time when your role unexpectedly shifted and how you dealt with it. *
Because we are a small, young company, our roles constantly evolve.
Your answer
If you are applying from outside of Northern Europe and want to stay where you're living, tell us why you'll be able to work successfully remotely (including past experience). *
If you live in Northern Europe or are willing to move, please note that here.
Your answer
What draws you to work a company like Hearken, vs. a more traditional or established organization? *
Your answer
As we grow Hearken's presence in Europe, the team will start very small, and likely will not be in the same place much of the time. Please describe how you think you'd work in this type of solo environment.
