Great question, here are my favorite failures:

  • Not being hired by booking.com in 2017 after getting to the 3rd of 4 steps
  • Failing to properly manage my team during my first quarter at that big payment company I mentioned in the article
  • All the "I'll blog consistently this time" moments I had for years before finally achieving consistency

So, yeah, those failures are not really code related. I guess that frontend engineer fails whenever an expected outcome isn't reached, maybe it is a new job, success in a side-project, or mastering a certain tool.
