Updates to Greenhouse/AngelList integration (May 6, 2019)

As of May 6, 2019, the following updates have been implemented for the Greenhouse/AngelList integration. 

  • Syncing matches to Greenhouse will now be free for all customers. Previously, only Premium customers could sync matches.
  • Resumes and unmasked emails will now sync to Greenhouse for all customers, not just Premium.
  • Customers will now be able to send instructions to team members with proper Greenhouse permissions to request API keys.

Configure user setup permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

In order to enable the Greenhouse/AngelList integration, you will need the developer permission Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials.

Contact a Greenhouse user in your organization with Site Admin level permissions with the additional user-specific permission Can edit another user's advanced permissions to apply the API credential management permission to your account. Have the user with Site Admin level permissions edit your user account's permissions by navigating to the Configure icon Configure.png > Users > Your Name.


The user with Site Admin level permissions should navigate to the Permissions panel on your user page and expand the Developer Permissions dropdown menu. 

Select Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials so a check is in the checkbox. When finished, click Save


Create a Harvest API Key for the Greenhouse/AngelList integration

To create a Harvest API key for the integration, click on the Configure icon Configure.png in the upper right-hand corner. Navigate to Dev Center on the left-hand panel. From the Dev Center page, click API Credential Management.


From the API Credential Management page, click Create New API Key to generate the API key for AngelList. 


In the Create New Credential dialog box, make the following selections:

  • API Type: Harvest
  • Partner: AngelList
  • Description: AngelList Harvest API Key

When finished, click Manage Permissions to generate the Harvest API key and automatically assign it the appropriate permissions required by AngelList. 


In the subsequent dialog box, click Copy to save your API key to your clipboard. Store the API key in a secure location to provide to AngelList in the next step. Click I have stored the API Key once you have copied and saved the key.

Note: You will not be able to access the full Harvest API key again after clicking I have stored the API Key. If you lose your API key and need access to it later, you will need to create a new API key, provide it to the integration partner, and then revoke access to the original key.


On the subsequent page, confirm the following permissions are assigned to your new API key:

Import jobs

The Import Jobs section lists the jobs AngelList pulls in from Greenhouse Recruiting. For each job, select a mapping option using the dropdown menu in the upper right-hand corner.

If this is a new job, choose Import as new job. If you already posted this job in AngelList, choose it from the options under Map to existing job. This will prevent us from creating duplicate jobs.

We highly encourage you to add salary and equity information here to increase inbound quality, as candidates often add compensation filters to their job searches.

Click the Import Jobs button once you are finished.

You can view your newly imported jobs at Synced jobs display a green sync icon next to the job title.

Jobs-only sync 

If you have the Jobs Only Sync, all of your live job posts in Greenhouse automatically sync to AngelList. Any candidates who apply on AngelList will be visible in your AngelList account, and you must go into your AngelList account to manually add those candidates to Greenhouse Recruiting via Add a Candidate or Maildrop.
