To access your customers’ employment data in Zenefits, you have two options:
Zenefits offers APIs to both its customers and developers wanting to build connected solutions for employers. Read about Zenefits’s API.
Developers must meet Zenefits’ App Acceptance Criteria. That means, in addition to building your app, you must pass security and functionality reviews and then get a minimum of 10 customers to beta test your app. This page has more details.
That largely depends on the integration method you choose.
If you use Finch’s unified API to access the employment data in Zenefits (alongside over 200 other HRIS and payroll systems), it can take as little as a few days. See our quickstart guide for more information.
If you instead decide to build a 1:1 integration leveraging Zenefits’ API, it can take weeks to months to receive your production keys. See Zenefits's developer portal for more information.
If you’re building a 1:1 integration using Zenefits’s public APIs, the company’s developer portal is the best place to start. That’s where you’ll find their technical documentation for their APIs and webhooks.
If you’re integrating with Zenefits via Finch’s unified API, navigate to our API docs. There, you’ll find a product demo, quickstart guide for developers, integration checklist, and product and developer guides, along with best practices to follow.

Unified employment APIs help developers access data from payroll and HRIS systems used by employers. Specifically, these APIs are useful for accessing data from a broad range of employment systems or collecting detailed information about their customers’ payroll and benefits details. If your use case requires integrations with three or more employment systems, a unified employment API could save you hundreds of engineering hours and developer resources.
Through a single integration, you can connect with over 200 employment systems (including Zenefits)—unlocking up to 88% of the employer market. Once authorized by the employer, you’ll receive fresh data every 24 hours. From enterprise-grade security to read and write capabilities, Finch offers compelling benefits to employer-facing businesses of all shapes and sizes. Learn more
