How does Lever integrate with Zenefits?

Lever is a collaborative hiring tool that empowers every team member to successfully recruit the right talent

When you integrate Lever with Zenefits, you can use the integration to:

  • Automatically push hired candidate information from Lever to Zenefits.
  • Sync resumes between Lever and Zenefits.
  • Streamline your new hire offer and onboarding process.

Setting up the Lever integration

You can set up your Lever integration by selecting the Add an App option on the main dashboard and then selecting Lever from  the list. 


You'll need to have administrator permissions on the  account you want to link in order to set up the integration. 

You'll also need to grant permissions to Lever 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 Lever to complete the setup. 


If you already have a Lever account, selecting Connect Existing will take you to the Lever login page. For information about how to connect to Zenefits once you're logged into Lever, see the following Zenefits Help Center page: How do I set up Lever ATS?

If you don't have a Lever account yet, selecting Sign Up will take you to the page seen below. You can then sign up for a Lever 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. You can also find more information about integrating Zenefits and Lever on the Lever website

Using the Lever integration

Once Lever and Zenefits are synced, the Lever 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 Lever , manage them in Lever through the Manage option, or  disconnect Lever from Zenefits through the Disconnect option.
