Nexflix, LinkedIn, Uber and many high-profile software companies use Node.js for developing their primary applications.
Because Node.js is fast to develop with, secure, lightweight, scalable and allows for a unified code base for both frontend and backend.
Unified codebase for both frontend and backend
Node.js is lightning fast
By using Node.js PayPal decreased the response time of the API to 35% which resulted in pages being served 200ms faster.
Easy Monitory and Debugging
One of the things that makes Node.js uniquely suited to running in production is that you can inspect and change a program without restarting it. So very few other languages offer that capability.

Strong Corporate Support
The founding members of the Node.js organization are Microsoft, SAP, Fidelity, PayPal and IBM.
Great Development Community
Node.js is the most used framework based on stackoverflow’s 2019 insights.
Great Dependency Management
The Node Package Manager (NPM) is the world's largest Software Registry.
IBM backed, enterprise-ready server-side Node.js framework
LoopBack apps handle much higher load using less hardware
Enables developers to reduce the time needed to build complex APIs
Loopback has connectors for enterprise legacy systems like DB2, Oracle, MSSQL
Enables API developers to easily write micro-services
Google backed frontend framework, focused on developer productivity, speed and testability
Component-based architecture that provides a higher quality of code
Angular has great readability, reusability and maintainability
It uses TypeScript, providing better tooling, cleaner code, and higher scalability
RxJS: efficient, asynchronous programming
Development and infrastructure systems are seamlessly connected through deployment pipelines allowing us to automatically run tests, created builds and deploy code updates.
All applications require a fast and issue-free delivery. New features need to be delivered to the end-user fast and without issues. Our process is optimised for no-downtime deployments.
All our web environments are scalable and respond automatically to changes in traffic. This way the hosting costs are optimised for the actual traffic while the users get the best experience.
In the rare cases of a fault the environments can react and recover automatically. Logs are saved for analysis and everyone involved in the development gets notified about the issue.
All servers are monitored 24/7 and logs are being streamed to storage and analysis systems. This helps both development and product teams deliver the best experience to the end-user.
