Enable the Greenhouse/team5 Integration


  1. To start, contact your team5 representative ( to receive your API key. Once you have received 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.


  1. 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 and Configure the team5 Stage to a Job’s Interview Plan


Once the Greenhouse/team5 integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the team5 assessment as an Interview stage.

  1. In the Send Test dialog box, select the team5 test that you want to assign to the candidate from the Test dropdown menu.

If you are unsure of which test to select, you can view details on each of team5’s tests, including the subject matter, level of difficulty, and setup of the test scenarios at team5’s Assignment Library.

  1. To access the team5 Assignment Library, click Cancel in the Send Test dialog box to close it, and then click the Interview Kit on the candidate’s page.

  1. On the Interview Kit page, click the link next to team5 Assignment Library.

  2. Next, select an appropriate individual from the Who should grade it? dropdown menu. team5 will actually grade the test that the candidate takes and send the results to you in Greenhouse. Still, because Greenhouse requires designating a grader from your company, you must make a selection.

  1. Once you are finished, click Send Test.

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, information regarding the test is actually communicated to the candidate by team5 via email.

  1. Once sent, the status of the test will be viewable on the candidate’s page in Greenhouse.



Review Test Results
