How can we help you?


Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Cangrade allows you to seamlessly add a Cangrade assessment to your interview pipeline. In this article we will cover how to:


Enable Greenhouse/Cangrade Integration

To start, contact your Cangrade representative ( to receive 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.


Add Cangrade Stage to Job's Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/Cangrade integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the Cangrade assessment 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 Cangrade stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.



Configure Cangrade Stage

Once the stage has been added, click Edit next to Cangrade. From there, you will see a drop-down menu that reflects the assessment that you’ve previously set up in Cangrade. Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessment, and then click Save.

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


Send and Review Test

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

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions will actually be sent by Cangrade.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse and will display either:

  • Cangrade Assessment to be sent.
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from <DESIGNATED_GRADER>


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