Using the Spark Hire integration

The Spark Hire and Lever integration gives you the ability to automatically trigger one-way video interviews in Spark Hire when a candidate stage changes in Lever.

Most customers use one-way video interviews as a preliminary screening step in the hiring process to learn more about candidates in less time and improve collaboration with hiring managers.

In order to use Spark Hire and Lever integration, you must have an active subscription with Spark Hire. To learn more about Spark Hire, request a demo on the Spark Hire website

  8. Copy the generated API key and then click Done.
  9. Log in to Spark Hire and go to Settings > Integrations > Lever.
  10. Click Activate Integration and then click Configure Integration.
  11. Follow the Lever configuration steps one by one in the order shown below:
    1. Configure the API Key
      • On the next page, paste the Lever key you generated and click Save.
    2. Configure the Stage
      • The stage you select is the stage in Lever which will trigger a Spark Hire interview when a candidate is moved to it. We recommend speaking with Lever to set up a stage named Spark Hire. Choose your Lever stage and click Save Stage.
    3. Map Users
      • Link users between your Spark Hire and Lever accounts based on who you want using the integration. This is how both systems know which person is taking integration actions. To link users, simply select a Spark Hire user and a Lever user, then click Link Users.
    4. Create Interview Packages
      • An interview package allows you to configure a series of variables once and trigger interview invitations using these variables through the integration. This consists of a Spark Hire Job, a Lever Job, a Spark Hire Question Set, and an Interview Deadline. For example, let’s say you have a candidate in Lever that you want to invite to a Spark Hire one-way video interview. You would move them to the Stage you designated in the integration setup and the interview package tied to the job the candidate is attached to in Lever would be triggered
      • When you’ve made your selections, click Create Interview Package.
      • When you’re in Lever and move a candidate to the stage you configured for Spark Hire, the Interview Package tied to the Lever job (opportunity) is what will be initiated for the candidate.
  12. When this is completed, you’re ready to use the integration!

This upfront work will set your Lever users up for success as they won’t need to continuously select/modify repetitive fields when trying to invite candidates to Spark Hire one-way video interviews.

Use the Spark Hire integration

When an opportunity changes to the stage chosen in set-up a SparkHire interview will be triggered. 
Updates about the progress of the interview will be displayed on Notes on the opportunity.
