Obama offered playlist job

Music streaming service Spotify has offered
United States President Barack Obama a new
position once his time in office comes to an
end.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek tweeted the job listing
for a “President of Playlists” specifically catered
to Obama’s skills and accomplishments, as his
eight-year tenure nears its end“Hey [Obama], I heard you were interested in a
role at Spotify. Have you seen this one?” Ek
wrote.
The position called for a minimum of eight
years experience “running a highly-regarded
nation” as well as a familiarity with the Spotify
platform including programming playlists at a
“federal level.”
“Anything from an eclectic summer playlist, to a
celebratory, ‘I just found my birth certificate’
playlist,” the listing stated..The desired candidate would also be required
to “be nothing short of one of the greatest
speakers of all time” and have a good rapport
with high profile artists.
“Ever had Kendrick Lamar play at your birthday
bash? We’d love to hear about it!” The listing
read.
Perhaps the most lofty requirement mentioned
in the listing is being the recipient of a Nobel
Peace Prize, which Obama won in 2009.
If accepted for the position Obama would be
required to identify, substantiate and analyze
new playlists as well as “provide world-class
leadership” to playlist editors and other Spotify
supporting stats.
