How to switch from Servicenow Dev to Backend?

I’m currently a ServiceNow Developer at a startup, and I’d like to transition to Backend roles. I don’t see how big orgs would even let me get a chance to interview because of my current role -

Any pointers on how I go about it?

In a similar situation, the best way to see if you can switch internally for a position of your interest. Gain required experience work there if you like or switch later. I was a L3 dev for a very long time and there are very few jobs available for same. But since I was good at what I did and people knew same, i went for devops position internally and now in transition to that role. It did took explaining where i was coming from and what I can offer but people are more ready to listen if you are from same company. Atleast that was my experience. Hope that helps.
