How to use the MeVitae Integration with Greenhouse

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 shortlisting and redaction technologies, how many candidates you would like to shortlist and what types of terms you would like to redact.
