Use the Velocity Global integration with Greenhouse Recruiting

The Velocity Global Sales Solutions team will assist you in setting up and configuring the integration.

After completing the setup, the data will flow and sync between the two systems automatically.

  • The integration uses Greenhouse Recruiting's webhook capability to trigger the data from your Greenhouse Recruiting platform into Velocity Global once a new offer is created or approved, depending on your webhook configuration.
  • Velocity Global’s Sales Engineering team will work closely with you to ensure your Greenhouse Recruiting application is configured with the necessary fields for this integration to run smoothly. This may involve creating new custom fields.
  • On the Offer, you will create a new “Velocity Global Sync” custom field to indicate the candidate is assigned for Velocity Global integration.
  • The integration will only run for candidates marked for Velocity Global syncing.
  • The candidate's data will be synced with the Velocity Global cloud-based software automatically, preventing any manual data errors.
  • In addition, the integration will trigger the onboarding process in Velocity Global.
  • Notification emails will be sent to your team and Velocity Global account managers based on the user's notifications preferences. These emails will be sent by Velocity Global, not Greenhouse Recruiting.
