Spotify offered Obama a job as 'President of Playlists'


President Obama will be out of a job soon. Spotify wants to fix that.

Founder and CEO Daniel Ek posted a job listing on Monday, offering Obama a job as the "President of Playlists."

Technically, anyone can apply, but one of the qualifications is "Have at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation."

Here's Ek's original announcement.

The qualifications are mostly jokes, including:

  • "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!
  • Someone with good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize.

Spotify is a Swedish company. Obama told the U.S. ambassador to Sweden, "I'm still waiting for my job at Spotify" last week, the BBC reports.

Obama has been blessing Spotify with playlists since 2015.

WATCH (From 2016) | Obama has said after he leaves office, he'd like to own an NBA team or teach law. Rumors were floated that he'd become a Supreme Court justice, but Donald Trump's election win quashed those plans.

One day, he might have competition for the Spotify job.

Should Obama take a job as 'President of Playlists'?
