Top executives cost companies $250k to $500k to have on their team, making it especially hard for startups to attract the candidates they need.
Companies worldwide spend billions of dollars every year on executive searches, while most startups are forced to limit their search to their current network.
Founders feel the burden of forgoing experienced executives in order to save costs, leading to more problems and expenses down the line.

A fractional hire is, as the name implies, someone who is
hired to work for a fraction of the time a full-time employee
would work. So, a part-time employee? Not really. Fractional
employment doesn’t necessarily have a fixed schedule.
Usually, fractional workers will make themselves available to a client during certain hours that work best for them and their client.
Fractional recruiting and hiring enables startups to grow
quickly without having to invest more money than they need to
Every startup needs experienced C-Level executives that will be able to guide them and advise them on their journeys. They need business leaders with “been there, done that” resumes.
Getting a top executive on board full-time is going to take a large investment, one that your startup might not be able to afford at this time, despite the fact that a need for leadership exists.
Our executives are vetted with a thorough application process, including a screening on paper as well as a video interview. We complete the initial vetting so that we can match you effectively to 5 options, and then you can easily choose one.
You can hire a fractional executive for anywhere from 2 hours to 20 hours per week. We don’t require a minimum number of hours in the scope, you are flexible with setting up the time commitment and can ramp up or ramp down hours as needed.
For fractional engagements, we don't charge companies a fee.
We charge fractional executives 15% on their total earnings
through our platform.
When a company hires an executive full-time and brings them off the Shiny platform, we then charge a recruiting fee to companies. The recruiting fee is equal to 15% of the executive’s first-year guaranteed cash compensation as a full-time employee at the company.
Unlike other platforms, we don’t ask you to pay a deposit or a search fee. You can sign up to the platform for free and request matching. You will only pay for the fractional executive you hire, nothing else.
The cost of hiring a fractional executive can range from $125 per hour to $600 depending on the type of fractional executive and experience.
Yes! We won't get in the way if you find an executive through us and decide you want to hire that person full-time. If you do hire one of our executives full-time, we will charge you a 15% recruiting fee.
Upwork is a marketplace for unvetted freelancers. Shiny does not allow just anyone onto its platform, we only have vetted C-Level executives to choose from. Every executive goes through a multi-step vetting process to ensure that we only offer the best talent.
