Hotz was offered the opportunity to hack the iPad 2 in a hacking challenge, according to rival hacker Joshua Hill, but he declined claiming that he wanted to maintain a low profile and focus on his new job. While unconfirmed, Hill believed Hotz is involved in helping to develop Facebook's upcoming (and as of now, unconfirmed) iPad Facebook app.

Hotz's Facebook employment was confirmed by messages left on his profile, saying that he began employment with Facebook in May, calling it “an amazing place to work.”
