About the Google Hire - bob Integration

How it works 

Once you mark a candidate as hired in Google Hire, the integration with bob will create a bob account for your new hire. An email and in-app notification will be automatically sent from bob, where you'll have the opportunity to confirm or adjust the employee's information prior to the account creation.

*Once the integration has been set up, you can select additional users to receive these notifications at Settings > Integrations > Recruitment Integration 

  1. Follow the link in either of the notifications and you will be taken to the new employee’s profile in bob's New Hire Wizard.
  2. Some basic information, already imported from Google Hire, will appear (full name, job title & department, email, start date etc.).
  3. Check the imported data and adjust as needed.
  4. Click Next to complete the hiring process so your new employee is created in bob and ready to go! 

   5. Following the new hire wizard you will be prompted to choose a date on which to
       invite your new hire to join bob. You can choose between sending now, on their
       start date, or any specific date of your choosing.

Which fields are mapped?

Data will be automatically imported from Google Hire to bob once a candidate is marked as hired in Google Hire, according to the table below. Custom fields from Google Hire’s Job section will also be automatically mapped if they have the same names as bob fields. 


  • After entering my Google credentials (step 4) I am not getting the permissions screen as shown in step 5.                                                                                            Please check with your Google Hire admin to make sure your account has access to Google Hire.
  • I have completed all the steps as described above, but the circle in the Google Hire tile is still grey.                                                                                                 Please check with your Google Hire admin to make sure your account has Admin System Role granted.
