A recruiting platform at its core, Greenhouse goes beyond just tracking applicants; it offers the tools companies need to manage their entire hiring process. Greenhouse was built to align with how great recruiting organizations work, and includes industry best practices for hiring great talent. It is scaled throughout the company, so hiring teams are able to make more informed decisions.

The hiring strategy in Greenhouse starts by finding the right candidates, and they incorporate a variety of sources, such as job boards, in-person events, external agencies and referrals. A/B testing allows teams to know which job posts garner the best potential candidates. It’s a functional tool for tracking ROI and optimizing campaigns. Greenhouse also encourages current employees to help with applicant sourcing. They can submit referrals and share job openings via social media.

Having a solid plan for the interviewing process saves time for both hiring teams and candidates. Greenhouse defines a consistent process for interviews and, since everyone follows this same agenda, it’s easier to objectively compare candidates' strengths and weaknesses. This plan can be customized to fit different hiring projections and job requirements. The Greenhouse Interview Kit contains a candidate’s resume, contact info, as well as instructions for the interview and a scorecard for capturing feedback.

The software offers complete visibility over the candidate pipeline. Automated tasks help move candidates along so no one stalls out in the process. Their Application Review Tool scans through resumes with just a single click. Reporting gives information on quality and volume of candidates.

Greenhouse is suitable for growing and midsize companies.
