Samsung Hires a Prolific Android Hacker Who Never Finished College !!!

Samsung Mobile just hired a top Android hacker named Steve Kondik.

He updated his Facebook profile to include Samsung under his “Employers” area.

Steve Kondik is the founder of CyanogenMod, one of the most popular alternative operating systems for Android phones that add features and makes devices run faster.

Crafty Android users can update the “ROM” on their phones to take advantage of CyanogenMod.

Apparently, Kondik’s work on CyanogenMod won’t be involved with his work at Samsung. He’s proof that you don’t need to graduate college to land a big job in tech.

[Update]: Samsung just confirmed the hire with a congratulatory tweet at Kondik, also known as “Cyanogen.”
