This article is for setting up a two-way integration between SeekOut and Greenhouse. To learn about the one-way export feature, see our article here.

Sort through candidate data from your ATS using SeekOut's powerful search engine and filters. Your Greenhouse data is mirrored within SeekOut every day, and SeekOut enriches your data with social links, work history, and education. Greenhouse Stage and Status filters are available in a collapsible search menu.

Before You Begin

Please contact your Customer Success Manager or our support team so we can coordinate your integration setup.

Your Greenhouse account must have the developer permission "Manage ALL organization’s API Credentials" enabled.


See the section in this Greenhouse article Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting for steps on how to set this up.

Your Greenhouse login and your SeekOut login must both use the same email address when setting up the integration.

Create your API Key

Login to your Greenhouse dashboard and click the Configuration icon at the top right. Navigate to the Dev Center, then click API Credential Management.


On the next page, click the Create New API Key button. Select Harvest as your API Type, SeekOut as your Partner, and enter a description.


Click Manage Permissions, and your new API Key will be available to you. Click Copy to copy the key to your clipboard. 


Click I have stored the API Key to close the window. The Harvest API permissions page will open automatically.

Accessing Integrations

Click your initials at the top right of the SeekOut dashboard, then select Integrations.


Don't see the Integrations option in your menu? Contact your Customer Success Manager or support@seekout.io and ask to enable ATS integrations for your org.

Connecting the API

On the Integrations page, scroll down to the Rediscovery section and click Connect next to Greenhouse.

  • Name
    • The name of this integration as it appears on the Integrations page. The default name is GreenHouse. Leave this as-is.
  • Harvest Key 
    • Paste the API Key from GreenHouse in the Harvest Key field. 
  • App Url 
    • Login to GreenHouse and copy the URL. Include the protocol (https://) and the top-level domain and trailing forward slash (.io/). See the screenshot below for an example. 


  • Disable Attachments 
    • Attachments are resumes, cover letters, and other files associated with a candidate in GreenHouse. By default, attachments are viewable on candidate profiles in SeekOut under the Your ATS tab. Toggle Disable Attachments to remove attachments from view in SeekOut.

Click Save to start the GreenHouse Rediscovery connection. 

Removing the Integration

Click the horizontal three-dot button next to a connected integration to Edit or Remove the integration from your SeekOut account.

Connection Stages 


The ATS is connected and SeekOut is indexing candidates from GreenHouse into SeekOut. This process takes up to four hours. Not all candidates will be visible in the Your ATS tab during the Indexing phase. 

Connected / Start ATS Search 

Candidates have been indexed from GreenHouse into SeekOut. Candidates can be viewed in the Your ATS tab. The index of GreenHouse candidates is updated every four hours. 

Click Start ATS Search to go to the Your ATS tab. 

How to use Rediscovery

Click Your ATS on the Search page to view candidates from GreenHouse.    


Your ATS has the same search functions that are available in the Public Profiles tab. Use keywords, Boolean, power filters, and diversity filters to refine your search. 

Unique features in Your ATS 

The Your ATS tab has two additional features:  

  • a set of filters specific to your ATS (highlighted in blue below) 
  • The candidate's status, recruiter, job application, and contact information from GreenHouse (highlighted in yellow below)


ATS Filters (blue) 

The following filter categories are viewable on the Your ATS tab: 

  • Stage 
  • Status 
  • Job 
  • Rejection Reason 
  • Source 
  • Recruiter 
    • Name of the recruiter assigned to the candidate in the ATS 
  • Last Updated 

The exact filters available will depend on the data in the org's GreenHouse instance. For example, if the org does not have any candidates in GH assigned to the Technical Phone Screen stage, then that filter will not be shown in SeekOut. 

Candidate ATS Status (yellow) 

An overview of the candidate's status in GreenHouse. 

  • Date updated 
  • Recruiter 
  • Job 
  • Stage 
  • Status 
  • Email 
    • All of the candidate's email addresses from the ATS are listed 
  • Phone 
    • All of the candidate's phone numbers from the ATS are listed 
  • Attachments 

Note: if Disable Attachments is toggled in the GreenHouse Rediscovery connection on the Integrations page, then attachments will not appear in this box. 


SeekOut uses the candidate's LinkedIn URL as the main identifier for matching their ATS profile to their SeekOut profile. If there is no LinkedIn URL found in the candidate's resume, other pieces of information will be used to try to match the candidate including github urls, job history, education history, etc. 

When a profile isn't matched, SeekOut will not enrich it with additional info. The profile will appear without a LinkedIn URL in the Your ATS tab. Only info mirrored from the ATS (including the resume) will be shown in the profile. 

ATS Insights 

SeekOut aggregates candidate data from your ATS and displays interactive charts for diversity, location, current/previous company, job title, and much more. Hover your mouse over a row to see how many candidates share that data point, and click on a row or use filters to refine your results even further. 


Print & Export Insights 

Click Print to print the current page. Use your browser's printer settings to select how many pages of data you wish to print. 

Click Export to export the data on the current page to a spreadsheet. You can download it as an XLSX file or view it in Excel Online. The spreadsheet has information and charts (when applicable) for the following candidate data: 

  • Location 
  • Current Company 
  • Current Title 
  • Past Company 
  • Past Title 
  • Skills 
  • Years of Experience 
  • Years in Role 
  • School 
  • Degree 
  • Major 
  • Diversity 
  • Industry 
  • Company Size 
  • Other 
    • Certifications 
    • Languages 
    • Groups 
    • Interests 
    • Honors/Awards
