MetaProp is a New York-based venture capital firm focused on the real estate technology (“PropTech”) industry. Founded in 2015, MetaProp’s investment team has invested in 150+ technology companies across the real estate value chain. The firm manages multiple funds for both financial and strategic real estate investors that represent a pilot- and test-ready sandbox of 20+ billion square feet across every real estate asset type and global market.

The Chief of Staff serves as an extension of the Managing Partner and will help support, project-manage and, in certain cases, lead critical areas of our business. In addition to several ongoing responsibilities, the Chief of Staff manages a small set of special projects at any time. These special projects are temporarily owned by the Chief of Staff and might not yet have a natural home elsewhere in the organization.
The role is an excellent proving ground and learning opportunity for someone who wishes to shadow an executive and learn how to lead more effectively. The Chief of Staff has deep interactions with the entire business including firm strategy and leadership, startup investments, capital markets, investor relations, marketing, HR, finance, accounting, legal and compliance, etc. This is an opportunity to work on the front lines of real estate industry tech and innovation, build sector knowledge in real estate and PropTech, and work with talented entrepreneurs, VCs, limited partners, real estate industry executives, and other key PropTech ecosystem stakeholders.
As award-winning investors, MetaProp’s team is among the most recognized thought leaders in this fast-growing industry and includes respected investment professionals, researchers, best-selling authors, TedX speakers, and professors. Our professionals have backgrounds in real estate, tech startups, investing, banking, and consulting, making us uniquely qualified to support and empower property’s entrepreneur and investor community.
