Bryq provides combined cognitive and psychometric assessment. After a candidate completes the Bryq assessment, they are ranked on how well they would fit the specific job role and your company. Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Bryq allows you to seamlessly add Bryq’s assessment to a job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover how to:


Enable the Greenhouse/Bryq Integration

In order to enable the integration, your organization will need to retrieve your Bryq API key. You can find your API key in Bryq under Company Settings > Integration > Greenhouse. If you have any problems locating your API key, simply email

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.


Add Bryq Stage to Job’s Interview Plan

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


Configure Bryq Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit. Use the provided dropdown menu to choose assessments that you have previously set up in Bryq.

Select the appropriate assessment from those created in Bryq and assign at least one Greenhouse user to review submitted assessments.

The remaining fields are not relevant to Bryq 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 performed in Bryq.


Send and Review the Test

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

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


Click on the Send Test next to Bryq. 


Use the subsequent dialog box to:

  • Confirm the email address of the candidate
  • Select which assessment the candidate will participate in. While the Bryq assessment is universal, the assessment is always graded based on the specific job profile. You can create new assessments in Bryq.
  • Assign a grader to the test. The grader will be notified to review Bryq results and determine next steps for the candidate.

Click on the Send Test when finished

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse: 


Once the candidate has submitted their test, the status will be updated accordingly: 


In the Interview Kit you can see the detailed candidate scores. Score is the overall match of the candidate, composed of the Cognitive Match and Personality Match scores. You are also shown the details of the Cognitive scores.

Please consult your Bryq documentation on how to interpret the results and how to conduct more efficient interviews using the candidate results.
