Finch has partnered with Gusto, the nation’s leading payroll, benefits, and HR services provider for SMBs. Read and write data to Gusto with our unified API.

We’re excited to announce our partnership with Gusto, one of the nation’s leading payroll, benefits, and HR services providers for SMBs. With this new partnership, approved developers can use Finch to seamlessly read and write data to Gusto — in addition to hundreds of other HRIS and payroll systems. By increasing the total number of developers that can integrate with Gusto, either through a direct partnership or through Finch’s unified employment API, we can empower innovators to build the next generation of HR technology. 

As the HR tech landscape has grown, it’s become increasingly important that systems be able to interact with one another. But, building integrations across a wide variety of HR platforms can be costly and time-consuming for developers. Finch makes it easier for a developer to quickly integrate with 200+ HR platforms via their unified API, enabling innovation in the market.  

Developers use Finch to connect to their customers' Gusto accounts

“Developers want to integrate with every HR system their customers use, but with so many players in the space, this can be a real challenge," said Jeremy Zhang, CEO and cofounder at Finch. “In the same way that Plaid created greater interoperability with financial service providers, Finch is emerging as the unified infrastructure underpinning the employment ecosystem. As we enter this new partnership with Gusto, we’re excited to work together to build more deeply integrated experiences for employers.”

Gusto is a well-loved nationwide brand with over 300,000 employers using its platform for payroll, benefits, and HR services. Gusto supports integrations with hundreds of solutions in the SMB space, and launched an embedded payroll solution mid-2021 enabling other companies to offer its payroll services inside their app or service. By partnering with Finch, Gusto can expand their network of developers and accelerate innovation for SMBs.

"Our partnership with Finch creates a new way for developers to integrate with Gusto and will help to accelerate more innovation in the HR space," said Andy Toung, Chief Strategy Officer of Gusto. “By supporting more integrated experiences, we can solve real pain points for our customers allowing them to better care for their teams.”
