I really hope this kind of success on the Android platform can be replicated on other platforms

Unlike Android, other technologies, like e.g. server technologies, each have their own name. For example, take a look here: https://www.itjobswatch.co.uk/jobs/uk/kotlin.do Scroll down to “Co-occurring IT Skills”, Android occupies I believe 40%-50% (they are not mutually exclusive), and if you scroll further down you’ll see Apache Spark and ElasticSearch, and HTTP and what not. Each has may be single-digit %, but cumulatively they would add up. I didn’t do the complete math, but I strongly believe Android is not the only thing on Kotlin Job Market.

Some companies use kotlin on their backend too...e.g. Toast in the Boston area..
It may be semi-anecdotal, but this article i wrote some time ago about using Kotlin with Apache Spark has been getting much more traffic two years later. http://tomstechnicalblog.blogspot.com/2016/11/using-kotlin-language-with-spark.html
