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

To implement the integration, you will:

  1. Register with GEEKTASTIC as a HIRER.
  2. License or Create code challenge(s) that you would like to administer via Greenhouse.
  3. Set who the default reviewer is for each challenge (you can select whether Geektastic carry out the peer reviews or your in-house development team, the reviews being carried out using the Geektastic code review tools)
  4. Contact Geektastic to request your API key by emailing
  5. Fill out the form at or click here to open a ticket. Please do not send the API key in this initial email.
  6. The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key into (How does SendSafely work?), which will notify Greenhouse Support once the API key has been entered.
  7. Greenhouse Support will then email you back confirming that your API key has been setup in your account and your integration is ready to go.
  8. Add a special GEEKTASTIC stage to your interview pipeline.
  9. As candidates enter that stage, send the GEEKTASTIC code challenge through Greenhouse.
  10. Once candidates submit their test, a link to the results will be accessible through the Interview Kit in Greenhouse.


Enabling the Integration

To enable the integration, contact GEEKTASTIC to request your API Key. Once you have received your API key, fill out the form at or click here to open a ticket. 

Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email.

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 that your API key has been set up in your account and your integration is enabled.

Note: To verify your identity, the Greenhouse Support Team might request you provide a Support Verification Code before adding the API key to your organization's account.


Adding the GEEKTASTIC 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 GEEKTASTIC Assessment, 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 assessment that you’ve previously set up in GEEKTASTIC. Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted the assessment, and then click Save.


Keep in mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, will need to be handled in GEEKTASTIC.  While you will click "Send Test" from within Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by GEEKTASTIC automatically.


Sending the Test

When candidates are moved into the GEEKTASTIC 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 GEEKTASTIC automatically.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:

  • Take Home Test to be sent.
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test

Please note that this does not update in real time. GEEKTASTIC will send an email to the registered email on the GEEKTASTIC account notifying you that the review has been completed

  • 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 GEEKTASTIC.
