Most of the new hires will work in MetaCommunications’ Iowa City headquarters. Currently, MetaCommunications has 64 employees worldwide.

The Series A investment round was led by Next Level Ventures, a venture capital fund based in Des Moines, and St. Martin Land Co., an investment firm in Cedar Rapids.
