Integrate a job board with your organization’s career page

Permissions: Basic users and above who can manage job board-related API credentials

Product tier: Available for all subscription tiers

Tip: Check out our overview article for information on how to get started.

Greenhouse Recruiting allows you to integrate the job boards and posts you create in your account with the career page you already have on your organization’s website.

This process saves time, streamlines the management of your job boards and posts, and simplifies applicant tracking by tracking data from a single place.

Part of setting up your Greenhouse Recruiting account involves choosing how you want to integrate your account with your organization’s careers page. You’ll decide how you want your careers page to look and function. Depending on which option you choose, you may need to allocate additional time and resources to set up the integration.

Note: Before you start, make sure you have created a job board, set its status to Live, and granted developer permissions to manage job board-related API credentials.

Choose an integration option

Greenhouse Recruiting offers five integration options to choose from. Each option varies in setup time, complexity and customizability.

Before choosing an integration option, work with your team to determine your implementation timeline, the amount of web development resources you have, and the desired "look and feel" of your job board. Check out our overview article for more information.

Tip: To get your integration up and running as soon as possible, we recommend starting with the simplest option. You can always change your integration option at a later time.
