This integration requires set-up in both the Lever and Rippling systems. You need to be a Super Admin in Lever and an Admin in Rippling to enable this integration.


Rippling's HRIS and IdP platform manages onboarding, offboarding, and provides a single sign-on. As an official Rippling partner, Lever makes it easy to push hired candidate information to Rippling instance and initiate the onboarding flow.

This is a one-way sync of new hire data from Lever to Rippling, where Rippling will pull the candidates on a regular basis. Admins in Rippling can always synchronize to fetch the lastest candidate information from candidates in Lever off of their candidate profile, application, offer, and attachments.

How to setup the Rippling integration?

1. Navigate to Rippling’s app directory page > click on the Lever App
