Lever integration guide

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.

✅ Lever’s integration with Interview is only available to users with Interview plans that support ATS integrations (i.e., Business, Starter, Team, Plus, and Enterprise plans).

The Interview integration allows you to create live interview sessions or asynchronous take-home tests for candidates to gauge their coding and problem-solving abilities. Readers of this article will be able to:

  • Enable the Interview integration
  • Use the integration to generate coding live interview pad links
  • Use the integration to create coding asynchronous take-home pad links

⏱️ The take-home test time limit is set to 2 hours for all ATS integrations and is unable to be changed at this time.

Enabling the Interview integration

Creating Configurations

Now you’re all set to configure your integration!

In this section you will create configurations that use Tags to generate preconfigured pads in Lever. 

  1. Click to “Add Configuration” on the Lever Integration landing page.
  2. Select the hiring stage you where you’ll use a pad.
The "select hiring stage" list is displayed.
  1. Choose the type of pad you want to generate: Live interview pad or a Take-home asynchronous test pad.
The pad settings window is shown, with the options to select pad type.

Take-Home Tests require selecting a question that will be used in the pad. Using a question for a Live Interview is optional.

  1. Enter in a tag name and click to Create. This will be the tag you use in Lever to generate a pad link at the respective hiring stage.
The configuration settings window is displayed with the option to display a tag name.
  1. Then you’re ready to copy the tag and use it in Lever. Alternatively, you can create your next configuration and tag by selecting a new hiring stage.
