Xref Integrates with Greenhouse to Meet Growing Demand in North America

  • Xref reference checks now available directly from the Greenhouse platform 
  • Addresses demand for best-of-breed candidate verification in North America 
  • Becomes Xref’s 28th live platform integration 


Xref Limited (ASX: XF1), the human resources technology company and hiring software company, Greenhouse, have announced the live launch of their integration. 


Greenhouse helps businesses become great at hiring through their powerful hiring approach, complete suite of software and services, and large partner ecosystem.  Greenhouse hiring software supports more than 4,000 customers, including some of the world’s most successful companies. The launch of this integration allows Greenhouse users to request and monitor the progress of Xref reference checks directly from their Greenhouse Recruiting dashboard. 


All integrations developed by Xref are driven by client demand and a need for the combined solution offered by two platforms. Greenhouse is headquartered in North America, and it has an impressive client portfolio. This partnership comes as a result of demand for a best-of-breed solution to all candidate verification requirements in Greenhouse’s market and it presents another great opportunity for Xref to grow its presence in the region. 

The integration allows users to make an informed hiring decision backed by Xref insights, without leaving the Greenhouse platform. It addresses a real need, given current market conditions, to streamline business applications. Since Xref is incorporated into the platform’s assessment component, reference notifications can be sent directly to allocated company graders, enabling them to review the feedback and provide their thoughts directly within the Greenhouse scorecard. 


Jon Stross, President and Co-founder, Greenhouse, said: “As the recruiting industry continues to evolve, there has been an increase in demand for new technologies that aid sourcing and hiring efficiency. Partnering with Xref offers our mutual customers a fast-track process to gather high-quality candidate insights and make educated hiring decisions in a fraction of the time.” 


Macey Barton, Group Talent Lead, WPP AUNZ, said: "As longstanding users of both Xref and Greenhouse, we’re so excited to see this integration come to life. Both platforms already offer us efficiency and consistency in our recruitment and enable us to meet the standards expected by our global organisation. Combined, they will bring even greater ease and speed to the critical processes we must make sure we’re completing for every hire."
