Spotify wants to recruit Obama for the ‘President of Playlists’ job position

Spotify has recently been hinting at former President-elect Obama to apply for a role within their music streaming company.

Obama had previously joked to the former Swedish ambassador Mark Brzezinski, stating:“I’m still waiting for my job at Spotify.” Now that he has left his post at the White House it may not be out of the question for the former President.

The Spotify CEO has seemingly tweeted at Obama a very specific job offer for a role within the company simply titled the ‘President of Playlists‘. The job description is filled with clever quips and tongue in cheek experience idealities. The successful candidate for the position must possess qualities such as the ability to prepare “the perfect warm up playlist for addressing the nation about health care legislation” and also “Have at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation.” Contacts also seemed important for the job spec with the ad suggesting that good relationships were key – “Ever had Kendrick Lamar play at your birthday bash? We’d love to hear about it!”

Obama has been sharing his playlist’s over the last two years which have featured his favourite summer songs from artists such as Janelle Monae, Edward Sharpe, Leon Bridges, Nina Simone and the Beach Boys. Obama is still yet to divulge his post-presidency plans but he did mention that he would like to work with the Democratic party and help build the “next generation of leadership; organizers, journalists, politicians,”.
