My experience is that Typescript is definitely more enjoyable to work with than plain JavaScript. It helps you catch (some) errors, provide code completion and backward compilation. In that aspect it is definitely more scalable when you have multiple people working on the same project.
Having said that Typescript isn't a magic wand. It tries to bring strong typings to JavaScript but at the end of the day you still need to be aware that you're working with JavaScript, and many problems still persists. If I have to do frontend work then I'd definitely pick it over JavaScript. However for backend programming I think there are better choices than Nodejs/Typescript
