HireHunch is primarily an 'Interview As a Service' company. We help companies to do the initial round of technical interviews so that their core engineering/product team only speaks to the best of the lot. Currently, we are focused mostly on all software engineering functions along with Product and UI/UX.

Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with HireHunch allows recruiters to schedule technical interviews with external interviewers directly from Greenhouse

Now, HireHunch will export the candidate’s information from Greenhouse, add it under the respective job post, and schedule the candidate’s interview with HireHunch’s interviewer panel.

Please be aware of a few functions that are not currently possible due to limitations with both platforms. HireHunch will continue to develop the HireHunch/Greenhouse integration, and hope to provide more functionalities as new product enhancements are released.

  1. Every recruiter should download and activate HireHunch’s chrome extension. Without this functionality, the interview has to be scheduled by logging in to the HireHunch account only.
  2. HireHunch Feedback form cannot be filled in Greenhouse. Hiring manager and or recruiter have to fill the feedback form on HireHunch only.
  3. There is no way to resend, reschedule, or cancel a HireHunch invitation from Greenhouse.
  4. Greenhouse allows a single test result per job application.
  5. HireHunch Evaluation results cannot be updated after they are populated.
  6. There is no synchronisation with Greenhouse if you send an invitation from HireHunch directly (inviting through HireHunch does not automatically show up in Greenhouse).
