Use the Greenhouse Recruiting / MeVitae Integration 

MeVitae’s integration with Greenhouse works automatically. However, additional customization is required through the MeVitae administrator dashboard (Please see video). The dashboard enables you to state which types of roles should use MeVitae’s redaction technologies and what types of terms you would like to redact.


Cloned Candidates

MeVitae allows an option to have cloned candidates created when redacting. Clone candidates are copies of redacted candidates that contain no personal information. The only information they hold are as follows:

  • First Name - Original Candidate ID
  • Last Name - *MeVitae
  • Resume - Redacted Resume


Redacted Parameters

MeVitae will redact the following parameters from CVs when selected in the Dashboard:

  • Gender
  • Name
  • Email
  • Address
  • Cities and Towns
  • Countries
  • Disability
  • Ethnicities and Nationalities
  • Sexuality
  • Religion
  • Marital Status
  • Hobbies and Interest
  • Dates
  • Age
  • Universities
  • Schools
  • Phone Numbers
  • URLs
  • Social Media
  • Airports
  • References


When selected for redaction these terms will be replaced inside a copy of the candidate’s CV with “x’s” and highlighted black. The copy will then be uploaded to the original candidate and a cloned version.
