The infamous hacker and iOS developer Grant Paul (@Chpwn) has joined Facebook and already completed his intern in the social networking company. The hacker itself confirmed this via twitter of joining and internship at Facebook.
Chpwn is a skilled iOS developer and has developed many useful cydia tweaks like Spire, Zephyr, Gridlock, VoiceActivator, Infiniboard, Infinifolders, IconSupport and many more. We really can’t say that will Chpwn will continue to provide more such useful tweaks in cydia now.
Just finished my first day as an intern at Facebook. Very excited.

Last year, Geohot has also joined Facebook but soon he quite the company and was involved in some hacking events. Following that, hacker @Comex has also quit jailbreaking and joined google. It seems the big companies are targeting to hire the brainy hackers.
Facebook is already in process of making Facebook smartphone and has already hired several former Apple engineers for their new project, who had worked on different iOS models including iPhone and iPad. Other than the ex-employees, the hackers are the ones who work close to Apple smartphones and know a lot about them. The strategy to hire people with knowledge of Apple devices, may this time make the company successful to bring iPhone competitor in market.
