Integrating Jobvite with Teamable


When Jobvite is integrated with Teamable, Teamable automatically synchs your company's jobs and job owners to Job Lists and pushes candidates who have been emailed or passed back to the recruiter to contact. Teamable also has a listener to obtain the latest status on any candidate and display it within Teamable.

Jobvite Engage

  1. In order to connect Teamable with Jobvite, you will need to have the Jobvite "Engage" module enabled and request the following from the Jobvite Customer Success Team:
    • api_key
    • api_secret
    • comp_id
    • IMPORTANT NOTE: These keys must have access to all 3 APIs:
      1. Job API
      2. Contact API
      3. Candidate API.
  2. Once you have them, send them along to Teamable Customer Success, along with the email of the who you would like to be the default job owner in Teamable.
    • This is who owns the job in Teamable whenever the person who is the primary job owner in Jobvite has not created a Teamable account.

Adding Candidates

  1. When a candidate message is sent out by an employee to a prospective candidate from Teamable, or passed back to the recruiter to reach out to directly, Teamable pushes that prospective candidate and any notes on Teamable activity, including the message to the candidate, to Jobvite.
    1. In Jobvite, the prospective candidate will become a contact, findable from the pipeline view.
      • Simply search by name to find the candidate.
      • Figure Four: Finding a contact in Jobvite imported from Teamable.

    2. Click the name to see complete details on the candidate. In the example below, this is a new prospect with two notes. If you click on Notes, you will see the notes from Teamable that were created when the prospect was pushed to the ATS.
