Using the HireUp integration

HireUp will synchronise your jobs and new referred candidates from Lever automatically. You can see all the applicant information on the candidate opportunity in Lever, such as Resumes, Cover Letters, Endorsements and candidate info.

When you create a new job in Lever, the job will appear in HireUp for your employees to refer to. Note, it may take up to 1 hour for the job to appear as the integration pulls new jobs every hour.
