Enable the Greenhouse/HackerU-JustCode Integration


To start, Open www.justcode.com, login into your employers account, from top right corner options click on Link to Greenhouse’  to copy your API key refer the image below.




Once you have your API key, click here to open a ticket with Greenhouse.


Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email. API Keys allow access to sensitive data and must be kept secret. If an API Key is shared in an email and your email is intercepted by a malicious third party or your email account is hacked, the hacker would be able to view and access your API Key. For this reason, we require API Keys to be shared securely using SendSafely, Greenhouse’s secure data transfer platform.


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.


Add JustCode Assessments  Stage to Job’s Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/HackerU-JustCode integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the JustCode 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 JustCode Assessments stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.


Configure JustCode Assessments 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 assessments that you have previously set up in JustCode Assessments. 

Select the appropriate assessment 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 assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be done in HackerU-JustCode. 



Send and Review the Test

When candidates are moved into the JustCode Assessments interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by HackerU-JustCode.
