  1. Frontend platform:

    • Creating and maintaining the Wildcard Component Library
    • Owning the Sourcegraph web tech stack, tools, and patterns
    • Providing documentation and training material that enables product teams and new hires to learn how to do web development at Sourcegraph quickly
    • Defining and maintaining how we test and deploy frontend code
    • Ensuring an efficient and reliable frontend CI pipeline
    • Tracking, measuring, and improving cross-cutting frontend metrics like bundle size, Web vitals, etc.
  2. The core user experience of the Sourcegraph product:

    • Accessibility, navigation, and information hierarchy
    • Performance and efficiency of the core UI
    • Some areas of code browsing
    • Sourcegraph application homepage, user settings, and admin pages
    • … And supporting other teams in all of the above

We also maintain the canonical list(s) of frontend devs at Sourcegraph and host the Frontend Crew meeting. For a breakdown of responsibilities across teams, see Engineering Ownership.
