How can we help you?

I use Arctic Shores. What does the integration look like? How do I enable it?


Greenhouse and Arctic Shores have created an integration so that you can seamlessly use the two products together to add an assessment to your interview pipeline.

To implement the integration, you will:

  1. Ensure a Program has been setup on the Arctic Shores Datahub
  2. Contact Arctic Shores to request your API key (the API key is also displayed on the Program page on the DataHub).
  3. Email or to click here open a ticket. Please do not send the API key in this initial email.
  4. The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key into (How does SendSafely work?), which will notify Greenhouse Support once the API key has been entered.
  5. Greenhouse Support will then email you back confirming that your API key has been setup in your account and your integration is ready to go. 
  6. Add a special Arctic Shores Stage to your interview pipeline.
  7. As candidates enter that stage, send the Arctic Shores Test through Greenhouse.
  8. Once candidates submit their test, a link to the results will be accessible through the Interview Kit in Greenhouse.

Enabling the Integration

To enable the integration, forward the API key to your Greenhouse Account Manager. Your Account Manager will enter the API Key into the system and then let you know when the integration is ready to go.

Adding the Arctic Shores Stage

To add the stage to your Interview Plan:

  • Navigate to a specific job, and click the Job Setup tab
  • Click Interview Plan
  • Scroll down the page, and click the green + Add Stage button
  • Select Arctic Shores, and click the Add button


Configuring the Stage

Once the stage has been added, click Edit Take Home Test. From there, you will see a drop-down menu that reflects the assessment that you’ve previously set up in Arctic Shores DataHub. Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessment, and then click Save.

Keep in mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be handled by Arctic Shores. While you will click "Send Test" from within Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Arctic Shores.

Sending the Test

When candidates are moved into the Arctic Shores stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link. While you will click "Send Test" in Greenhouse, the test instructions will actually be sent through Arctic Shores.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:

  • Take Home Test to be sent.
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from <DESIGNATED_GRADER>


Reviewing Test Results

Once the candidate has submitted their test, the Interview Kit will contain a link to view the submitted test and all scores on Arctic Shores.
