Founder story

Back in 2019, Matt Redler and Vasil Popovski started a personal chef app called Chefit. Their focus was on making personal chefs easy to order from, but on the side, they built a global team filled with talented, incredible people.

Chefit closed during covid-19, and after departing with the team, the founders worked day and night to make sure that everyone landed on new opportunities. Companies we knew wanted to hire our teammates, but couldn't because they didn't have entities set up across Eastern Europe and had no interest in that. The process takes months if you're lucky, a year if you're not, is expensive, and requires navigating a ton of foreign compliance.

So, we offered that our entities proxy-hire our former team members on their behalf, and that's how we landed on Panther.

The biggest consideration of the work-from-anywhere movement is that less expensive, highly talented global workforces will become the norm. We're proud and humbled to build the bridges that facilitate distributed teams.
