Metjen's career probably began under Huni, finally ending in the reign of Sneferu and is mostly known from his tomb chapel (Saqqara), which was never finished. One wall talks of a Temple of Sneferu and a mortuary estate for Huni in the Letopoloite Nome. Inscriptions on wall say he became District Administrator of the Xoite Nome after being Judge and hri-sqr of the nome.[1].

He mentions a posthumous cult existing for Nimaathap into the Fourth Dynasty in his tomb[2][3].
