Caliper's integration with Greenhouse allows you to seamlessly add Caliper challenges to a job's Interview Plan.

In this article, we will cover how to:

  1. Obtain an API key from Caliper
  2. Enable the Caliper + Greenhouse integration
  3. Add Caliper to a job's Interview Plan on Greenhouse
  4. Configure the Caliper stage
  5. Send and review a Caliper challenge invitation to a candidate

Obtain an API key from Caliper

Log in to Caliper and go to Settings (from the left sidebar). This should open up the API key dialog box. Enter a short name and click Generate token. This will generate a unique API key. Make sure to copy it as you will not be able to see it again. 

Enable the Caliper + Greenhouse integration

Once you have obtained 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 Caliper to a job's Interview Plan on Greenhouse

Once the Caliper + Greenhouse integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add Caliper 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 "" stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's Interview Plan.

Configure the Caliper 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 challenges that you have previously set up on Caliper. Select the appropriate Caliper challenge and assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessments. When finished, click Save.

Note: Keep in mind that all configuration of the challenge itself will need to be done on Caliper.

Send and review a Caliper challenge invitation to a candidate

When candidates move to the Caliper interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

Note: When you click Send Test from Greenhouse, the Caliper challenge invite along with instructions is sent to the candidate by Caliper.



When you click on Send Test, it will show a dialog to select the challenge and other fields.


The status of the assessment will be viewable on Greenhouse:



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


After you click on the Interview Kit on the candidate’s profile, you will be taken to a page with a link to view test results on Caliper.
