Spotify Offers Barack Obama “President Of Playlists” Job
President Barack Obama expressed that he wanted a job at Spotify once he was done running the country. That dream just might come true.
Last week it was revealed that President Obama doesn’t really want to stay in politics after he’s done being President. Instead, he’d prefer a job at Spotify. This news was revealed via Natalia Brzezinski, wife of Sweedish ambassador Mark Brzezinski.
Tonight President Obama invited all of the Ambassadors he personally chose to an intimate reception at the White House. I finally got the chance to thank him for the life-changing appointment to Sweden. He said word for word: "I loved visiting you in Stockholm, it was my favorite trip. I plan to go back there really soon." I told him I have the perfect opportunity for him to come visit and he told me "to send him the details on Brilliant Minds." He also declared– "I'm still waiting for my job at Spotify… Cuz' I know y'all loved my playlist." I am still swooning. 😂😂😍🌟🌟 @barackobama @whitehouse ❤️. @symposiumsthlm So proud of Mark for serving this historic President with all his heart!! 🙏🏻🇺🇸
Well, it appears that some strings are already being pulled as Spotify founder Daniel Ek just posted a new job listing and sent it directly to the President.
The job title is “President Of Playlists.”
The qualifications include:
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.
If they aren’t careful Al Gore might try to apply for this job too.
