With Greenhouse Recruiting, you can create free job posts on Indeed with your live external job posts.

Note: Beginning April 1, 2023, Indeed will not allow job post questions that seek personally identifiable information (PII) like full birthdates, driver's license numbers, or social security numbers from applicants. If your job post includes a custom question requesting PII, the job post will be removed from Indeed, and your Indeed account may experience restricted functionality. Reach out to your Indeed representative for more information.

Set up the Indeed integration

Note: You need to be a Site Admin in order to set up the Indeed integration.

To set up the Indeed integration, log in to Greenhouse Recruiting and navigate to Configure > Job Boards > then scroll to Global Partner Settings.

Enter a company email address for Indeed job feed company email. If your company has an Indeed account, use the company email address associated with your Indeed account. If you don't have an Indeed account, use any email address from your company email domain.

The Global Partner Settings page shows an example email entered for the Indeed integration.png

Note: To authenticate job posts and avoid spam, Indeed requires a company email address. This email address is used to validate your organization's job posts and is not used for any other purpose. 

When finished, click Submit.

Publish a free job post on Indeed

Once the Indeed integration is set up, you can publish a free job post to Indeed. Click Jobs on your navigation bar, then select a job from the list.

The All Jobs page shows example jobs listed with Benefits Specialist highlighted in marigold

Click Job Setup > Job Posts, then add a new job post or click the Edit icon beside the job post you wish to edit.

An example job called Benefits Specialist is shown with the job post called Benefits Specialist and the Edit icon highlighted beside the job post name

Scroll to the Publish to free job boards section.

Place a checkbox next to Indeed.

Begin typing a location for Indeed to associate with the job and select the location from the dropdown.

The publish to free job boards section is shown with Indeed checked and New York City, New York, United States chosen as the location

Note: Each of our job board integrations requires a location to be selected in order to create a free job post, including remote opportunities. To learn more about marking third-party job posts as remote, click here.

With Indeed, you can post the job as remote and available to a specific location, or remote nationwide and available to a specific country.

Place a checkbox next to Remote.

Example: If Omniva Corporation posts a remote job post to Denver, Colorado, United States, then only people in Denver searching for remote job posts will see the post.

To post the job as remote across an entire country, select Enable nationwide remote location for compatible job boards. You'll still need to select a location so the post can be associated with a country.

Note: Indeed nationwide remote job posts are only available in the United States, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia.

When finished, click Save.

Once the job post is live, the job's information is sent to Indeed. To learn about how Indeed promotes job posts, click here.

Note: It can take up to 48 hours for new job posts or updates to appear on Indeed.

Because Indeed offers sponsored posts for better positioning on their site, it isn't possible to repost a job ad in Greenhouse Recruiting to generate a new ad on Indeed. Taking the post down and then reactivating it, or closing and reopening the job will simply re-post the stale job instead of creating a new one.

Candidate source for Indeed job posts

When a candidate applies using a free job post on Indeed, by default their source is listed as Responded to an ad on Indeed.

An example candidate named Roshan Patel is shown on Greenhouse Recruiting with the source shown as Responded to an ad on Indeed
