Ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) crews are actively looking for affiliates to split profits obtained in outsourced ransomware attacks targeting high profile public and private organizations. The more well-known ransomware gangs run private affiliate programs where affiliates can submit applications and resumes to apply for membership.

For affiliates that are accepted into the program, the ransomware developers receive a 20-30% cut, and an affiliate gets 70-80% of the ransom payments they generate.
