When I learned that well-known hacker and conference speaker Jayson Street decided to join the Pwnie Express team, I knew this was the perfect time for an interview.

You've been highly independent, traveling the world on assignments for several years. What made you settle down to work for Pwnie Express?The main thing that drew me to working with Pwnie Express was the team and their commitment to being part of the broader community. From the very beginning Pwnie Express’s founder Dave and his crew were always part of the community. They don't just sponsor community conferences - they also give out their PWN devices for free. No matter how much they grow I know they will never forget their roots! 

On a side note, a funny behind the scenes story on my introduction to the team: I was first approached by Dave at DerbyCon this year. He introduced me to Paul the CEO of Pwnie Express and we had a great conversation. Though later that night I met Paul again but this time I was in a bright yellow Minion onesie. Upon seeing him I sheepishly said to him, "So rethinking the idea of having me working with your team?" His response was to laugh and say, "Oh no, this confirms it - you're a perfect fit."
