I guess the easiest way is to show your skill and knowledge of backend to your manager and other teams.
For example, if you can access other teams' codebase, you can tell your manager or other team's developer a way to improve a project.
Also, the side-project could be helpful to show people your skills as a full stack developer.

Nope, I don't have access and they don't have anyone as a full stack developer yet. I might be the first!

As for the backend-concerning skills, I still need to develop those. It will be great help if I could get some pointer on how shall I start!

In my opinion, creating an API server with node could be good as a starting point since you know frontend which means you can reuse your js knowledge.
If you want to use another language for BE, I think python and go lang are good.

I think that will offer you to learn at least the followings

  1. What restful api is (also you may want to know why people start using graphql)
  2. How to use db

3. How to deploy your app to cloud

Maybe use docker to create develop env quickly. This will some benefits to your frontend job.

You can find out good videos on youtube about creating API.

After that, you could suggest something to your manager to improve the product you are working on.
