I use Lisp at work whenever I can get away with it, which isn't much:
basically, just one steadily-accreting-ball-of-mud that's my user-mode
hardware bringup/debugging tool [think mmap + peek/poke + a bunch of
convenience functions], plus the occasional "script" or config/build
tool or other meta-tool.
Otherwise, it's all C for Linux/Unix daemon/kernel/driver/embedded code.
[Plus a tiny bit of assembler, mostly x86, x86_64, & ARM].
p.s. In my non-work life [yes, there *is* a smidgin of one] I use Lisp
in several web application servers, and for almost all coding I do
"for myself", e.g., mail filters/daemons, sysadmin "scripts", etc.
[And if I ever start a blog, it'll be in Lisp, too.]
