Uncommon delivers only qualified candidates that meet your job's custom qualifications, sourced programmatically across all your active and passive channels.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Uncommon allows your organization to empower sourcing optimization and candidate screening without leaving the Greenhouse platform. Grant Uncommon an API key with permissions to pull your live positions, source candidates, and forward a stream of pre-screened candidates who match your custom requirements back into Greenhouse. Users will be able to receive applicants along with qualification matching details, distinguish qualified and unqualified applicants, and disqualify applicants directly from Greenhouse.
