2020 HW Rising Star: Megan Meyer

Opendoor General Manager of Market Operations

Megan Meyer
Opendoor General Manager of Market Operations, Age: 34

Megan Meyer was Opendoor’s 20th employee, where she took a role as a renovations product manager. She told Opendoor Cofounder and CEO Eric Wu to put her where he needed her, and she’d get it done. She did just that. In just a few short years, Meyer has assumed a myriad of responsibilities across varied parts of the business, from tech and pricing operations to product and in-market operations. In her current role, Meyer works closely with the general managers for each Opendoor market to ensure they’re working cohesively and are aligned with the company’s mission as they grow their local footprint. Meyer is responsible for local construction operations, which has grown a network of over 1,000 in-market vendors that provide a variety of home services in preparation for putting Opendoor-owned homes back on the market. During her time at Opendoor, Meyer has been instrumental in helping the company scale sustainably from just one to 21 cities.
