For those of you who’ve been waiting (and for those of you who would’ve been if you’d thought of it), Weirdly’s newest integration with Lever is now live. That means, culture screening with Lever is now not only possible, it’s super easy.
Lever is one of the fastest growing ATS’s out at the moment. We’re fans of their collaborative recruitment philosophy and love their focus on nurturing candidate relationships, rather than the more transactional recruitment approach loads of other ATS’s take.
Weirdly is one of the fastest growing culture screening tools out there and we also take a candidate-led approach to the way we’re developing our science (and product). So it stands to reason, an integration with these guys has been on the cards since day one.
But, as anyone who has built software before knows, integrations are a notoriously tricky beast. We want to make sure we’re building this partnership in the way that best works for you guys, the Lever users. So, like with most of the things we do, we’re taking a slightly unorthodox approach.
We’ve built a basic integration that you can use today. Then we’ll build deeper and more complex levels of integration based on your feedback.
In a nutshell? We’d like you to try out our new integration today and tell us what you think. What’s working, what’s not and what you’d like to see us add in stage two. You’ll get to help us design and build your perfect ATS integration.
Setting up your own Weirdly integration with Lever.
First connect your Weirdly and Lever accounts:
- Log in to your Weirdly account. If you don’t have one, it takes 30 seconds to set up a free trial using our Quiz Generator. Just click the attributes you’re looking for in a candidate and we’ll auto-magic up a screening assessment full of fun, scientifically validated questions.
- You in? Great. Now go to your Admin panel, select the Integrations tab and click on the Lever logo.
- Follow the instructions to cut and paste your Lever Postings API Key and Job Site Address, then hit the big green “connect with Lever” button.
Congratulations! You just set up your integration with Lever. Now you can start sending candidates from Weirdly into your Lever candidate databases.
Next to each new candidate who completes your weirdly quiz, you’ll see a new “Lever” column. Clicking the icon will open a pop-up that shows you all your live Lever jobs. You just select the relevant job and your candidate gets attached to it in your Lever database.
If the candidate is already in your Lever database, Weirdly will attach their Weirdly score and assessment report to their existing profile. If they’re not already in your Lever system, we’ll create a new candidate profile for you, tag it with the job you have chosen and attach the same score and assessment report.
How do I integrate Weirdly into my current Lever process?
There are two ways our users are taking advantage of this new integration with Lever:
First stage screening:
What’s it good for?: High volume roles, Making the first screening step faster, An awesome first-touch candidate experience that put your values at the front of your recruitment process.
How does it work?: Add Your Weirdly quiz link to job ads, social posts and your careers site. Candidates use this quiz to apply for the job. You can then jump into Weirdly regularly to see who has applied and fire them through to your Lever account.
Second stage screening:
What’s it good for?: Engaging candidates and getting more buy-in, Refining from long-list to short-list, Helping you build a richer case when presenting specific candidates to hiring managers.
How does it work?: You can add your Weirdly link to an automated email in Lever that’s sent to the candidates in your long or short list. Candidates just click the link in the email to complete the quiz. You can then review and import their screening assessment report into Lever in the same way you do in the first stage screening.
