How do I integrate with Greenhouse?

In a few steps, you can use TestGorilla assessments within Greenhouse.

Are you using Greenhouse for managing your candidates? Then you can connect TestGorilla to your ATS. This allows you to do two things:

  1. Invite candidates to a TestGorilla assessment from within Greenhouse
  2. See the summarized assessment results of your candidates inside Greenhouse

This article explains how that works.

Step 1: Activate the integration

Click on your name in the top right corner of the application to open the Account Settings menu and then press "Integrations":

Then click "Enable" on the Greenhouse integration:

Copy the API key and contact Greenhouse customer support using the hyperlink above the API key. Request the support representative to enable the integration and give them the API key.

This would also be a good time to invite any of your colleagues to TestGorilla to make sure that they can access the full assessment results of a candidate. As an account owner or administrator, you can add them in the Team Management tab.

Step 2: Create an assessment in TestGorilla

Once you get a confirmation from your Greenhouse support representative, you can create a new assessment in TestGorilla. Follow the 4 steps to create the assessment and when you get to invite your candidates, you can select Greenhouse:

Doing so will make your assessment available in Greenhouse immediately.

Step 3: Add TestGorilla as a stage in your Interview Plan

Step 5: Invite your candidate(s) to the TestGorilla assessment
