Greenhouse live interview integration

Last updated on Available in French

ℹ️ As part of CoderPad’s rebranding effort, CoderPad Live is now just Interview. We’re still working with our integration partners to update the searches, until then you’ll still see references to “CoderPad” or “CoderPad Live” when you search within the partner’s application.

The Interview platform’s live integration with Greenhouse allows you to schedule and manage live interviews as part of the Greenhouse interview planning system.

ℹ️ You can find more information on the Greenhouse-side of the integration by checking out their full integration guide.
