FAQs

What percentage of the market uses BambooHR?

BambooHR serves over 30,000 customers worldwide. Because it’s unknown how many of those reside in the United States, it’s not currently possible to estimate the company’s U.S. market share.

How can I access the employment data in BambooHR?

To access your customers’ employment data in BambooHR, you have two options: 

  1. Build a custom 1:1 integration with BambooHR via its open API, which enables automatic data sharing between the two apps.
  2. Build a single integration with Finch to access the employment data housed in BambooHR plus over 200 other employment systems. 

Does BambooHR have a public API?

Yes, BambooHR offers an open API that’s available to third-party developers. However, you must have at least 100 customers to apply to become a partner. See the company’s Marketplace Program Requirements for more details.

How long does it take to integrate with BambooHR?

That largely depends on the integration method you choose. 

If you use Finch’s unified API to access the employment data in BambooHR (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 BambooHR’s open API, it can take months to push the integration live. You must first apply to become a partner before you can build the integration and bring it to market. See the company’s developer docs for more detailed information. 

Where can I find developer documentation and support?

If you’re building a 1:1 integration using BambooHR’s API, the company’s Developer Portal is the best place to start. That’s where you can get answers to your frequently asked questions and access their API docs. 

If you’re integrating with BambooHR via Finch’s unified API, navigate to our API docs. There, you’ll find a product demo, quickstart guide for developers, an integration checklist, and product and developer guides, along with best practices to follow.

Of course, if you have any questions, we’d be happy to help answer them. Send your requests to developers@tryfinch.com.

When does it make sense to leverage a unified employment API?

Unified employment APIs help developers access data from payroll and HRIS systems employers use. 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 programs. 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 BambooHR)—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
