Founder Story
Back in 2019, Matt Redler and Vasil Popovski started a personal chef app called Chefit. Their focus was on making it easy to order from personal chefs, but on the side, they built a global team filled with incredible, talented people.
Vasil, Matt, and the Chefit team together in Florida for a team retreat.
Chefit closed during covid-19, and after departing, the founders worked day and night to make sure that everyone landed on new opportunities. Companies they knew wanted to hire their teammates, but couldn't because they didn't have entities set up across 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, Matt and Vasil offered that their 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 are becoming the norm. We're humbled to build the bridges that facilitate distributed teams.
