iMocha is the world's largest skills assessment solution API platform that helps organizations build winning teams. The platform empowers organizations to thoroughly assess employees as well as candidates, essential to identify and benchmark their skills proficiency according to industry/company standards.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with iMocha allows you to seamlessly use the two products together to add an assessment to your interview pipeline. 

In this article, we will cover how to: 


Enable the Greenhouse Recruiting / iMocha Integration

To start, contact your iMocha representative to receive your API key. 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 iMocha Stage to Job's Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse Recruiting / iMocha integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the iMocha 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 iMocha stage. When finished, click Add at the bottom of the dialog box to add the stage to the job's interview plan.



Configure the iMocha Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit.


From there, you will see a dropdown menu that reflects the assessment you previously set up in iMocha. Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse Recruiting user to grade/review submitted assessment, and then click Save at the bottom of the page.


Note: Keep in mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be handled in iMocha.


Send and Review iMocha Test

When a candidate is moved into the iMocha interview stage, Greenhouse Recruiting will display a Send Test link on the candidate's profile. Click the Send Test link.


Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse Recruiting, the interview instructions actually are sent to the candidate by iMocha.

Use the subsequent dialog box to:

  • Confirm the email address of the candidate
  • Select which assessment / question set the candidate will participate in
  • Assign a grader


Click Send Test when finished.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse Recruiting. The following statuses are available:

  • Take Home Test to be sent
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from [designated grader]

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