I’m a copywriter, copyeditor, and proofreader. However, I do NOT use my mechanical keyboards at work... I use them at home for general computer usage, like video games, media controls, and also writing fiction. Mainly, I just like them and have fun in the hobby regardless what I’m using them for.

Application specialist. I don't actually type a whole lot, but I'm autistic, and the ability to customize a keyboard to fit all my weird sensory issues was highly appealing.
I bought my keyboard for grad school in linguistics. But I also code on my free time occasionally and would like to get into gaming

I’m a therapist... I do a decent amount of documentation. But I also game with my keyboard.

Programmer armed with a Planck/Aqua Zilents with several macro'd keys to do pairs of symbols, etc. I love when folks stop and ask about the "missing" keys and I can explain that not only are they all there, but I actually have more keys than they do :)

Those Topre keys are a joy, and they help me push through when I'm dealing with difficult legal opinions or written arguments.
Also, the space-saving layout is genius. The tiny footprint of the HHKB2 frees up significant desk real estate for all the printed documents and books I need to cross-reference. I got used to the function layer after just a couple of days, and since I don't often have to do a lot of numerical data entry, I don't really miss the number pad.
Special mention to the Ctrl key being moved to where Caps Lock normally sits - this makes so much sense when doing a lot of formatting in Microsoft Word.
Only downside - the Topre keys are quite audible and distracting in a courtroom (though quiet enough for the office).

These days I only bring it for hearings where I know the judge's typing is going to be louder than mine.
