Spotify Just Offered Barack Obama A Job

Last week Barack Obama was quoted saying now that his time as US President is coming to an end, he’s waiting for a job at Spotify to come up.

So, of course, Spotify have created a role just for him.

Yep, there’s an actual job listing for the role, titled “President of Playlists”

Spotify is growing globally, and we are now looking for a President of Playlists. In this position you will be overseeing our music curation and playlists team, across offices around the world.

Spotify started in Sweden in 2006, but we’re now in over 60 countries and counting. As an organisation, we are full of hope, and always open to change.

What you’ll do:

Provide world-class leadership to our playlist editors and supporting staff.

Identify and substantiate new playlist ideas, e.g. from a playlist for shooting hoops with your friends, to the perfect warm up playlist for addressing the nation about health care legislation that bears your name.

Analyse data and performance of playlists in a clear and transparent manner using all available intelligence. Attend daily briefings. Celebrate our diversity of playlists, from Viva Latino (3.4 million followers) to Rap Caviar (5.3 million followers).

Who you are:

Have at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation.

Familiar with the Spotify platform, with experience in programming playlists at a federal level. Anything from an eclectic summer playlist, to a celebratory, “I just found my birth certificate” playlist.

Have good relationships with a wide range of artists and musicians. Ever had Kendrick Lamar play at your birthday bash? We’d love to hear about it!

Can speak passionately about playlists at press events. Let us be clear, you should be nothing short of one of the greatest speakers of all time.

A keen attention to detail and consistency. Able to work closely with other departments, so playlists can hold up to public scrutiny. Someone with good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize.

There’s no word on if Barack Obama has decided to take the position.
