Organizations should be aware that HireVue divides access by US and EU customers. Below are the addresses used by each respective customer base:


Enable Greenhouse/HireVue Integration

To start, contact your HireVue representative to receive your API key. Once you have received your API key, click here to open a ticket with Greenhouse or fill out the form at

Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email. API keys allow access to sensitive data and must be kept secret. If an API key is shared in an email and your email is intercepted by a malicious third party or your email account is hacked, the hacker would be able to view and access your API key. For this reason, we require API keys to be shared securely using SendSafely, Greenhouse’s secure data transfer platform.

The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key. A notification will be sent to the Greenhouse Support Team after you have entered your API key and they will email you to confirm your API key has been set up in your account and your integration is enabled.


Add HireVue Stage to Job’s Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/HireVue integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the HireVue video interview as an Interview stage. 

To do this for an existing job, navigate to a job (All Jobs>Job Name) and click Job Setup from the Job navigation bar.


From the Job Setup page, navigate to Interview Plan on the left-hand panel. Scroll down the page and click + Add a Stage.  


From the Add Stage dialog box, select the HireVue stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan. 



Configure HireVue Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit Take Home Test. Use the provided dropdown menu to choose assessments that you have previously set up in HireVue. 

Select the appropriate assessment and assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessments. When finished, click Save.

Note: Keep in the mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, interview instructions, as well as the email template, will need to be done in HireVue. 


Send and Review the Test

When candidates are moved into the HireVue interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

Note: The primary email address of the Greenhouse Recruiting user sending the HireVue interview stage must match your email address in HireVue. This enables Greenhouse Recruiting to correctly display the test options when sending a test to a candidate. 

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:  


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