Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.
Nate wrote to us to say:
A few months ago I was approached via my CodePen profile with a job offer to code full-time, and I took it! I wasn't actively seeking a position as a developer. It was a bit of a surprise since the Hire Me button was the only thing out there advertising that I code for hire. I'm really glad it was though, because things have been great and I've never been happier!
We didn't get Nate that job, Nate got Nate that job, but it's pretty cool to hear we played a small role in making that connection happen.
