Greenhouse Recruiting and CoderPad have teamed up to help you better evaluate technical candidates through live collaborative coding interviews and take-home assignments. 

CoderPad is the leading technical interview platform for teams that need a simple, fast solution to help accurately assess candidates throughout the hiring stages. It works like an IDE to emulate real world scenarios and is easily personalized to specific development team needs — ensuring a positive experience for both the candidate and the interviewer.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with CoderPad allows you and your candidates to write and execute code collaboratively during an interview — right in your browser. Setup is simple and convenient.

Enable the Greenhouse Recruiting / CoderPad Live integration

To enable the integration, follow the steps in this article to retrieve your API key from your CoderPad Live representative.

Once you've set up your interview plans and configured your take-home test, you'll be able to send the test to candidates.

Use the CoderPad Live integration with Greenhouse Recruiting

Once the Greenhouse Recruiting / CoderPad Live integration is enabled for your organization,

you can add a CoderPad Live link to a candidate's interview. Click Schedule Interview from a candidate's On Job panel.


Note: A CoderPad link can be added to any interview stage with a scheduled interview. In the below example, we have created a unique interview stage for the CoderPad test called Technical Screening

From the Schedule Interview page, click +CoderPad Live Link to generate a session. The link to the session is added automatically to the interview's description.


After it has been sent, an assessment's status will display in Greenhouse Recruiting.

Once the candidate has submitted their test, the Interview Kit will contain a link to view the submitted test in the CoderPad Live application.

To see a candidate's results in CoderPad Live, click View Report.

Complete the steps to schedule the interview with the appropriate interviewer. When finished, click Schedule and Continue.

Note: Don't forget to also include a CoderPad link to any candidate communication you send regarding the interview.

The CoderPad Live link is added to the body of the Interview Kit for your reference and is visible in your calendar client. Click Send Invites to send the interview invitation.

The CoderPad Live link is available to interviewers in their interview meeting invite. Here's an example of a Google Calendar invite:

Don’t see the Send Invites button?

Newly generated CoderPad link says it has already been used.

To prevent wasting links when interviews are rescheduled, if multiple interviews are created in the same Greenhouse Recruiting stage, CoderPad assigns the same CoderPad link that was already created. This is because CoderPad links are generated based on specific data points passed on by Greenhouse Recruiting. 

To ensure a fresh CoderPad link, add a new interview to the stage.
