It all seemed like outgoing American President Barack Obama was facing a spell of unemployment after his two terms in office. Although it would have been a welcomed break for the 44th President, Spotify have launched a new job opportunity seemingly aimed at just one man. The role is labelled as ‘President of Playlists’ and has come to light after Obama joked “I’m still waiting for my job at Spotify … cos I know y’all loved my playlist”, at the Symposium Stockholm Festival.
On the surface the role of ‘President of Playlists’ looks to be solely directed at the outgoing president, however if you feel you can meet the job requirements then why not apply. provided you have “at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation” and are “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.”. As if the job specification wasn’t tough enough Spotify also stress that “you should be nothing short of one of the greatest speakers of all time.”
Despite the fact that many people would relish the opportunity to work at Spotify at any level, however it seems that Mr. Obama might look else where for his next position and in interviews has put across the idea that he would like to run a NBA basketball team.
If Obama does not want the role then now is your chance to apply, you can find the job advert here, and if you are from the future and the job ad has been removed there might be screen shot below.
