I have done a fair bit of both for contracts. Kotlin being so tightly woven with Android Studio makes it difficult to avoid if doing mobile development.

Actually, I quite enjoy writing it, it makes for IMO easier to read code than the Java it compiles to. Performant? Hmmm to that, haha.

I ocassionaly assist the backend team coding in Go. We use Echo a lot.

Overal, it's a very practical language:
- The language design is rather simplistic like C. No super fancy theoritical computer science influence typicall found in Haskell, Scala, Rust, etc.
Some may say the language is boring, but that also means teaching to newcomers is much easier.
- Can be compiled into native executable without requiring memory hungry VM
- Buiilt-in concurrency constructs.
- Deployment is easy: upload the executable to your server, configure the systemd... done. Docker, Apache, etc are not necessary.

But main job is Android dev, and I deal with Kotlin codebases on daily basis. In general, our Kotlin codebases are more compact compared than their Java counterparts. I also have done some API developments in Kotlin (with Spring Boot). Not that bad, if you don't mind to be tied with IntelliJ. And of course, the future of native Android dev is Kotlin Smile
