We used Parse at a start-up I was at and personally I was not a fan the way we used it.
Javascript to control the back-end from the front is a bit anti-thetial to separation of concerns. Then we use PHP and Parse on the PHP files where front-end and back-end were co-mingled together. We just ended up writing the same PHP parse over and over again. Then Parse has their own API end points. But I don't want to use there end points, the company needs to make their own. Overall, this felt very 2013. BUT perhaps it is possible to use Parse with a company's own API's, though I wasn't exposed to that way.
