Is full-stack still a thing?

I switched to doing data engineering and now all I get are inquiries for data jobs (or "cloud" jobs). The truth is, I kind of hate this work and would like to get back into doing full-stack stuff. Is that still a thing? Or have roles gotten so specialized that I have to pick something like data engineering or AWS or front-end?

Full stack is a thing for my group.

Nowadays, full-stack seems to mean "use Javascript for everything".

It's a very fragmented market.  There are tons of languages and frameworks, both on the back-end, front-end, and databases.

>too many javascript frameworks

If you're staff engineer level in a big tech company, the way you justify your salary is you make a new javascript framework, force people to use it internally, and promote it to the rubes who want to copy the big tech company.
