Backend: primarily Clojure. We also occasionally use Node.JS. Other things we hack in: Go/Rust/Python/Bash/Haskell.

Database/Persistence: PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Redis, Elasticsearch, Neo4j

Infrastructure: AWS, Azure, GCP, Heroku for infrastructure. CircleCI, Ansible, Terraform for CI. ZeroTier, ZeroMQ, Nginx, Lambdas/Azure Functions for miscellaneous tasks.
