We got the call. George LaRocque asked the Greenhouse Partnership team to speak at HRTech on what goes into developing a world-class partnership ecosystem that puts the customer first and creates a world where new technology companies want to integrate with Greenhouse first. Like our open Harvest APIs, we opened up and shared what we’ve learned.
Garret Starr, Head of Partnerships at Greenhouse, and Henry Tsai, VP of Product at Greenhouse, took the stage in Las Vegas in front of nearly 100 partnerships professionals. With over 430 integration partners, Greenhouse has created a unique Customer-Preferred Partner Program that highlights top partners across our ecosystem, enabling customers to have more transparency and peer guidance when selecting the right technology to suit their immediate and future needs. The Greenhouse Hiring Cloud and integration network stand out at having breadth as well as depth.
Supporting functionality across 25+ categories of HR and worktech technology, our list of pre-integrated solutions includes everything recruiters and TA leaders need to get hiring done effectively and build a modern, high performance TA tech stack that does exactly what each customer needs it to do.
Our approach to integrations and partnerships is built around the belief that strong tech partnerships serve the highest purpose – to help folks who are hiring every day to do so in a highly effective way.
– Garret Starr, Head of Partnerships at Greenhouse
Garret added, “I’m proud of what we’ve built in our renowned Greenhouse Hiring Cloud, and thrilled to be able to share it with our peers and tech companies just starting out on their partnership journey.”
More than a marketplace of add-ons or plug-ins, the Greenhouse Hiring Cloud was developed with a customer-first philosophy: open APIs allow for frictionless integrations so that customers can create their ideal hiring stack. At the same time, developer-friendly documentation enables partners to build the exact integration to add value to a customer’s hiring stack. Open APIs provide a variety of endpoints and data that can become solutions for customers. Maybe that’s improving a new hire’s first day by mapping candidate data to a HRIS integration. Or reducing manual work for talent professionals with automated scheduling or background checks. Developers building on Greenhouse APIs solve meaningful problems for their customers. The Hiring Cloud allows customers to think of – and solve for – every step and dimension of their hiring process.
The Greenhouse Hiring Cloud is uniquely configurable to our customers’ needs, because no two companies are hiring at the same rate or trying to achieve exactly the same goals. Businesses of any size can easily choose and turn on pre-built and Customer-Preferred integrations on demand. Additionally, hands-on guidance or customer integration work is supported through Greenhouse Services, our network of service providers and system integrators.
According to the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent Acquisition, “Suite vendors actively managing their ecosystem provide greater value, faster. The average number of integrations per customer continues to grow, as does the sophistication. Buyers want to be able to procure, implement and be serviced through their main suite provider, rather than a plethora of specialists.”
What does all this mean for the end user? Greenhouse becomes more valuable for companies when they’re easily accessing the functionality they need – even if it’s not Greenhouse-built.
“Recruiters need and use e-signature tools, background check capabilities and video interviewing every day. We’ve built our platform to allow our technology partners to invest deeply into those areas,” says Greenhouse VP of Product & Design Henry Tsai.
Greenhouse is focused on innovating in our area of expertise – hiring software. So we tap into a growing network of the best-in-class solutions to build the best Hiring Cloud for any and every business.
