MeVitae leverages the power of deep tech and people science to help organisations hire smarter,
faster, and fairer by mitigating unconscious and algorithmic bias. Their innovative Blind Recruiting
Solution debiases the candidate selection process, allowing organisations to hire more diverse
and inclusive teams. The integration with Lever will allow you to redact information from candidate records to remove bias from the interviewing and recruiting process. In this article, you will learn how to enable the MeVitae integration with Lever and how it is used.

Setting up the MeVitae integration

  • In MeVitae, navigate to your integration admin settings
  • Click + Integration and select 'New'

Using the MeVitae integration

You will first need to configure some details within MeVitae and Lever in order for the integration to work. 

Creating the Job Profile in MeVitae

MeVitae job profile

The prefix field will correlate to the job posting in Lever containing that posting tag, for example:

ME1 tag in Lever candidate profile

This means that any candidate tied to a job posting that has a tag label that correlates with a job profile in MeVitae will abide by the configured redaction rules.

Once the job profile is created, you will be able to expand it on your main dashboard to further configure the redaction level. Select + Add document profile and it will walk through setting that up.

Once this is set up, MeVitae will automatically process candidates on a scheduled cycle. It will collect candidate details, analyze/redact information, then deliver it back to your Lever account.

It is recommended to set up an additional stage after 'New applicant' in Lever to store all redacted profiles (see example below). To learn how, refer to our help article on adding pipeline stages.

The name of the redacted profile will correlate to the opportunity ID of the actual candidate record. In addition, the candidate record will include a link to the redacted profile in the link section of the profile.

Use the redacted profile to schedule team based interviews as this is the record that contains the redacted resume, this will ensure bias is eliminated as a part of the interviewing process. Once feedback is returned and the interview process is complete, use the original profile to continue the process in Lever.
