Is Greenhouse compatible with Google for Jobs?

Greenhouse is currently already integrated and have reached out to be added to their list here. Google's new enriched search results now also includes Jobs enriched results to call out jobs when searching for a specific company. More technical information can be found on this Google Support article:

If you'd like to improve the likelihood of your listings show up on Google for Jobs, we recommend reaching out to your marketing team or sub-team in charge of SEO (search engine optimization) to help with the following: 

  • Mark up your job listings with Job Posting structured data.  Feel free to reference this Google Guide for more  detailed technical documentation here.
  • Submit a sitemap (or an RSS or Atom feed) with a <lastmod> date for each listing
  • Use any of Google's tools to validate your markup, preview your listing, or track your sitemap status.  These tools are linked on this Google blog page along with more information about this Google feature.

Greenhouse adds metadata about job posts into the source code of job boards so Google's scrapers can parse our posts more easily.

There is optional metadata that Greenhouse does not currently add to job posts. These fields include: 

  • Address Locality 
  • Street Address 
  • Address Region 
  • Postal Code 
  • Employment Type 
  • Valid Through 
  • Base Salary

Excluding these fields does not impact whether the jobs show up in Google or not.
