Panther is so much more than an automated global employment and payroll platform. We’re on a mission to revolutionize how companies find, employ and grow remote teams internationally.
Founded by Matt Redler and Vasil Popovski, two friends from Florida and Macedonia, and backed by some of the planet's best investors, we exist to empower businesses to champion talent over location.
Our team is located across 12 countries, 5 continents, 8 time zones, and speak 10 languages.
We realized the need for Panther after two failed startups.
In 2019, we were building an app called Chefit that made it easy to order from personal chefs. But in spring 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic hit us hard.
When we founded Chefit, we wanted to watch the impact it would have on the people using the app. In reality, we saw a greater effect on the team we hired to build the app.
We hired the best talent from around the world. Everyone worked countless hours to help us succeed. And, now because of our failure, our team was jobless.
We played startup matchmaker. Our goal was to connect our team to companies that would give them a solid place to work. Plus, the companies would benefit from the incredible level of talent.
But, we quickly realized companies have a difficult time hiring people who live in other countries.
We were experiencing significant obstacles and challenges from compliance to local taxes to payroll. It was taking months, sometimes a year.
Putting our heads together, we set out to solve this problem.
That’s when Panther emerged.
We started Panther because we want to make it easier for Founders like us to hire the best talent in the world.
We want every Founder, every business leader, every HR department to see global talent as an option. We want to empower them to find the talent they need, wherever they may live. We're humbled to build the bridges that facilitate distributed teams.
Yes, we might remind you of that beautiful big cat, but that was a happy coincidence. For us,
Panther = Pangaea + Together.
We help companies build global and remote dream teams, by making global hiring as quick and uncomplicated as hiring locally.Apply to join our team
Talent is everywhere, in every city, every state, every country on the planet. We want to educate and inspire employers and talented individuals to work together, to grow together.
Panther started because we wanted to help our own team, during the Covid-19 pandemic. Caring about people got us here and it’s what moves us forward.
We’re authentic and aim to do right by people, every single time. Nothing has a double or hidden meaning with us. What people see is what they get.
The challenges we face as this industry evolves require a hands-on approach. When we identify a problem, we act. We embrace risk and act to protect and create a higher quality of life.
We pay attention to detail and do things with consciousness and rigor. We know that if one bit isn’t up to par, it can affect people’s lives.
We think of the whole picture, and we’re not afraid to dream beyond limitations. Our success — and the fun — lies in developing a new way of thinking.
We're backed by leading investors

Panther is built for companies and people who would rather work anywhere with the best talent. Here’s why.
We just did a Godzilla-sized overhaul of our branding at Panther. We’re proud of it. So along with that overhaul, I want to take a few words to explain what we see in the future of work––and how we’re all going to get there.
