Merge integrates accounting, HR, recruiting, and payroll API platforms into a unified API using those platforms' official APIs so that you can harness the entire range of available data. Integration with Merge's unified API is painless with accessible API design, SDKs in multiple languages, and easy-to-use documentation.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Merge allows companies to integrate Greenhouse Recruiting data with third-party applications.

Retrieve your job board token

To make your open jobs available to Merge, you'll need to retrieve your job board token and share it with Merge.

To locate your job board token on Greenhouse Recruiting, click the Configure icon Icon_-_Configure.png and select Job Boards & Posts from the left panel.

Select the Ellipsis icon beside your job board and click Edit Board Settings.

Scroll down to the URL field, and copy/paste the token that appears in the white box onto a separate notepad for use later.

Generate a job board API key

Note: To generate an API key, you must have the developer permission Manage ALL organization's API Credentials.

To generate a job board API key for the Greenhouse Recruiting / Merge integration, click on the Configure icon Icon_-_Configure.png and select Dev Center on the left panel.

On the Dev Center page, click API Credential Management.

From the API Credential Management page, click Create New API Key to generate the API key for Merge.

In the Create New Credential dialog box, make the following selections:

  • API Type: Job Board
  • Description: Merge Job Board API Key

Click Create.

Click Copy to save your API key to your clipboard. Store the API key in a secure location to provide to Merge in the next step.

Click I have stored the API Key once you have copied and saved the key.

Note: You won't be able to view the API key after clicking I have stored the API Key. If you lose your API key or need to access it later, you'll need to generate a new key and provide it to Merge.

Setup the Greenhouse Recruiting / Merge integration

Merge Link is a drop-in UI component that guides you through authorizing any integration on Merge.

Once you have set up Merge Link on Merge, paste the job board token and the job board API key generated in the previous steps into Merge Link's drop-in UI component.


After you authenticate the Greenhouse Recruiting integration, Merge will create a Linked Account for it which can be viewed and managed in your Merge Dashboard.

Use the Greenhouse Recruiting / Merge integration

Merge allows you to send and receive data from Greenhouse Recruiting using their standard common models, which include candidates, applications, attachments, and more.
