Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Indeed Apply allows candidates to apply directly to a job through Indeed without having to take the additional step of navigating to your company's careers page.

Note: Beginning April 1, 2023, Indeed will not allow job post questions that seek personally identifiable information (PII) like full birthdates, driver's license numbers, or social security numbers from applicants. If your job post includes a custom question requesting PII, the job post will be removed from Indeed, and your Indeed account may experience restricted functionality. Reach out to your Indeed account representative for more information.
