Greenhouse + CoderPad Take-Home Integration

Greenhouse Recruiting and CoderPad have teamed up to help you better evaluate technical candidates through live collaborative coding interviews and take-home assignments.

CoderPad is the leading technical interview platform for teams that need a simple, fast solution to help accurately assess candidates throughout the hiring stages. It works like an IDE to emulate real world scenarios and is easily personalized to specific development team needs - ensuring a positive experience for both the candidate and the interviewer.

The CoderPad Take-Home integration with Greenhouse allows you to send take-home questions and assignments to candidates conveniently via Greenhouse Recruiting. One-time setup is simple and convenient. In this article, we will cover how to:

  1. Find Your CoderPad API Key
  2. Provide the API Key to Greenhouse
  3. Add CoderPad Take-Homes to Interview Plans
  4. Review Take-Home Results

1. Find Your CoderPad API Key

To enable Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with CoderPad for Take-Homes, Greenhouse Recruiting needs your CoderPad API Key.

Note: Because the CoderPad Take-Home integration uses one API Key for your organization, it is recommended to provide Greenhouse Recruiting with the API Key of a CoderPad account whose “Name” is general (e.g., ‘Company Name’).

Navigate to your CoderPad account and locate the API Key on the Personal Settings page. Copy the CoderPad API Key.

2. Provide the CoderPad API Key to Greenhouse

Send an email to Greenhouse Support and provide them with your CoderPad API Key for the CoderPad Take-Home Integration. (Please note, there is also a CoderPad Live Integration which supports live, collaborative coding interviews and does not require working with Greenhouse Support.)

A Greenhouse Support member will input your API key into the Greenhouse Recruiting system to enable your CoderPad Take-Home Integration.

3. Add CoderPad Take-Homes to Interview Plans

Once enabled, within a Job Setup in the Interview Plan panel, click to +Add a Stage.
