Getting started with Lever

Brainner is a platform that automates resume screening by using AI to analyze and sort candidates based on recruiter criteria. It seamlessly integrates with Lever, automatically syncing job listings and candidate resumes. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to connect both solutions effectively.

Check out Brainner's the following getting started video to learn how to configure the integration and start using the platform.

2. Click Settings .

3. Click on the ATS tab.

6. Click Accept to authorize the integration.

As you can see from the image below, Brainner will need these permissions to: import jobs and candidates automatically from Lever, and post the results in the candidate’s profile in Lever.

  • Congratulations! The connection between Brainner and Lever is active!

There are still a few quick steps we will need you to take to configure Lever for this integration.


Configuring the Lever integration

Though you have activated the connection, there are still a few steps you need to take to complete the configuration.

After authorizing the integration, the settings window will appear automatically in Brainner. If by any reason you were not redirected to the settings window, you can get there by clicking on your Profile Picture and then Settings.

Configure preferences

7. In the ATS tab, configure the integration settings and click Apply Changes.

If you toggle all the settings, you will start receiving jobs and candidates automatically. Jobs will be sent from Lever automatically the first time that a candidate applies, regardless of whether it is old or new.

When you start using Brainner, we suggest disabling the ‘Auto-generate jobs’ setting, as shown in the screenshot below. This enables you to manually import jobs, giving you better control over the job creation process in Brainner, while still ensuring that candidates are automatically received for those jobs.

If you want to import both jobs and candidates manually, you can simply turn off all the settings.

8. A window will open highlighting the next step, that is configuring the Webhook in Lever. A webhook is a technical term that describes the action of notifying the Brainner platform of new candidates automatically.

Configure webhooks

The integration adds a new webhook configuration for when a new application is created. This webhook is disabled on Lever by default, so you must enable it. Once enabled, Lever will communicate to Brainner the required information to send new jobs and candidates.

9. In Lever, go to Settings.

10. Click on Integrations and API on the left side menu.

11. Click on the Webhooks tab.

12. If it is not already toggled, toggle the “Applications Created” webhook on.

5. If it is a new job and no candidates have applied yet, you will start receiving candidates automatically from Lever.

For a previous job where candidates have already applied in Lever, you will need to click ‘Import from Lever’ in the Candidates Tab to retrieve them. After this, any new candidates who apply will also be received automatically.
