Factorial is an HR platform that was created with the goal of solving the problems of Human Resources in small- and medium-sized businesses. Factorial optimizes time-off management, time tracking, payroll, documents, reports, and analytics: everything you need to manage your HR processes.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Factorial allows users to export hired candidates automatically to Factorial as new employees. In this article, we will cover how to:

Retrieve Factorial's Endpoint URL and Secret Key

Before enabling the Greenhouse Recruiting / Factorial integration, Greenhouse needs two pieces of information:

  • Factorial's Endpoint URL
  • Factorial's Secret Key

To retrieve this information, log into Factorial's Integration page.

Factorial’s Endpoint URL and Secret Key are unique to your Factorial account, and are only available to admin users. As such, you might be redirected to Factorial’s dashboard if you do not have the correct permissions to access this page.

Copy the Endpoint URL and Secret Key, then save this information to use in the next step.

Create a webhook

To integrate Factorial with Greenhouse Recruiting, you'll need to create a webhook. Follow the steps in this article to create your webhook. Use the values listed below to configure the webhooks.

  • Name: Factorial integration
  • When: Candidate had been hired
  • Endpoint URL: The Endpoint URL provided by Factorial
  • Secret Key: The Secret Key provided by Factorial

Use the Factorial integration with Greenhouse Recruiting

Once the integration is set up, hired candidates are exported automatically to Factorial as new employees. To ensure you maintain control of who has access to Factorial, approve new employees before they are added fully to Factorial.

The candidate information imported to Factorial from Greenhouse Recruiting includes the following:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • Start date

If you'd like additional information transferred to Factorial, reach out to the Factorial Customer Success team with a list of information to add.
