Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the design system public? #
Public documentation makes sharing and collaboration between different teams and third party vendors much easier as it increases the system’s visibility and accountability. This also makes us push towards higher quality content and enables us to be more transparent. Finally, this also serves as an amazing tool that we can leverage in recruiting.
What’s on the roadmap? #
See the Roadmap page for up to date plans.
What’s the meaning of “draft” badges? #
These badges indicate whether something is ready to be used in production. Orange (“Draft”) status means that it’s still under work and not ready to be used in production environment or design work.

What’s your working culture? #
The following set of fundamental rules allows us to get to the highest level of productivity while benefiting both the company and our team members.
- We avoid meetings as much as possible. Instead of having them, we communicate asynchronous to each other via Linear, GitLab, Notion, Figma, and (occasionally) Slack, expecting responses within 24 hours.
- We don’t do team wide standups or sync meetings, except one meeting at the start of every Linear cycle. Here we walk the through tasks in Linear and also discuss about how the team feels, what motivates them right now, and what would they want to change.
- Most collaboration and discussion happens in feedback loops, using the above mentioned tools, which requires clear and thoughtful communication from everyone.
- We don’t have strict deadlines. We ship incrementally as we move through the backlog and cycles in Linear and launch new things as they become ready.
- Our team members should be able to work on what they think is fun, or rely on their intuition when picking tasks from the backlog. Our public design system roadmap holds us accountable.
- We focus on persistent iteration over flashy launches.
