This includes the primary corporate site of verisign.com, several product and campaign focussed sites, a public blog, and a branding styleguide site. The team is on course to unify all these sites under a common set of frameworks and tools that allow for reuse of front-end components and a means for non-engineers to make content updates in a CMS-like manner.

This team manages a collection of front-end components, including site templates, themes, and webcomponents for interactivity, as well as a git-based content editing workflow and Netlify CMS interface.
