  • Pull in resumes into Zenefits with one click.

Setting up the Greenhouse integration

You can set up your Greenhouse integration by selecting the Add an App option on the main dashboard and then selecting Greenhouse from  the list. You'll need to have administrator permissions on the Greenhouse account you want to link in order to set up the integration. 

You'll also need to grant permissions to Greenhouse  for the following items in Zenefits:

  • Employee employment information
  • Employees'  basic information
  • Employees'  employment statuses
  • Types of employees

Once you begin the setup process, you'll be given your company ID number and secret key. You will need to copy and paste these into Greenhouse to complete the setup. 


If you already have a Greenhouse account, selecting Connect Existing will take you to the Greenhouse login  page. For information about how to connect to Zenefits once you're logged into Greenhouse, see the following Zenefits Help Center page: Setting Up Greenhouse ATS

If you don't have a Greenhouse account yet, selecting Sign Up will take you to the page seen below. You can then sign up for a Greenhouse account and then follow the instructions listed above to connect your Zenefits account. 


Once the setup is completed, the green Connected status will appear under the  app's  icon . 

Using the Greenhouse integration

Once  and Zenefits are synced, the Greenhouse app will show up in your main administrator dashboard. You can use it by clicking it and then selecting Manage. In the integration, you'll be able to see which employees are synced in Greenhouse , manage them in Greenhouse through the Manage option, or disconnect Greenhouse  from Zenefits through the Disconnect option.
