Cobol, Ada and maybe fortran 77.

Haha joking. Maybe Java, Seems counter intuitive but all in all it's a robust language for backend. dotNet for going Microsoft shop. Cpp if you want to do pointer everywhere and memory management. Else if you want to get arcanic Lisp, Logo, Prolog, Forth, Lambda. The rest either lack a bit of stability or is just the Nth attempt at being different.

Else just take the one that is getting you a bit outside the frontend world 🦄
