How can we help you?

I use HireVue. What does the integration look like? How do I enable it?

Greenhouse HireVue Integration from Greenhouse on Vimeo.


Greenhouse and HireVue have created an integration so that you can seamlessly use the two products together to add a video interview to your interview pipeline.

To implement the integration, you will:

  1. Contact HireVue to request your API key, and then send it to your Greenhouse Account Manager who will take care of entering it into the system.
  2. Add a special HireVue stage to your interview pipeline.
  3. As candidates enter that stage, send the HireVue interview through Greenhouse.
  4. Once candidates submit their video, a link to view the submitted video interview in HireVue will be accessible through the Interview Kit in Greenhouse.

Enabling the Integration

To enable the integration, contact HireVue to request your API Key. Once you receive it, forward it on to your Greenhouse Account Manager. You Account Manager will enter the API Key into the system and then let you know when the integration is ready to go.


Adding the HireVue Interview Stage

To add the stage to your Interview Plan:

  • Navigate to a specific job, and click the Job Setup tab
  • Click Interview Plan
  • Scroll down the page, and click the green + Add Stage button
  • Select HireVue Interview, and click the Add button


Configuring the Stage

Once the stage has been added, click Edit Take Home Test. From there, you will see a drop-down menu that reflects the video interviews that you’ve previously set up in HireVue. Select the appropriate video interview, assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade submitted interviews, and then click Save.

Keep in mind that all configuration of the video interview itself, as well as the email template, will need to be handled in HireVue.  While you will click "Send Test" from within Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by HireVue.


Sending the Test

When candidates are moved into the HireVue Interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link. While you will click "Send Test" in Greenhouse, the interview instructions will actually be sent through HireVue.

The status of the video interview will be viewable in Greenhouse:

  • •Take Home Test to be sent.
  • •Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • •Scorecard due from <DESIGNATED_GRADER>



Reviewing Test Results

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