 In this article, we will cover how to: 


Enable Greenhouse/Karat Integration

To start, contact your Karat 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 Karat Stage to Job's Interview Plan

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



Configure Karat Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit Take Home Test. Use the provided drop-down menu to choose assessments that you have previously set up in Karat. 

Select the appropriate assessment and assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessments. When finished, click Save.

Note: Keep in the mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be done in Karat. 


Send and Review the Test

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

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Karat.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:

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