The Time Spotify Offered Barack Obama A Job As “President Of Playlists”

Remember when Barack Obama recently joked that he was hoping for a job at Spotify? Well, as it seems, Spotify listened.

To return the joke (and because this is a wonderful marketing gimmick), the streaming giant posted on its careers page a vacancy for “President of Playlists!”

Even though the posting does not specifically name Barack Obama, the job description says that applicants should have “at least eight years’ experience running a highly-regarded nation”“a friendly and warm attitude”, and of course, a “Nobel Peace Prize”. I mean, every President of Playlists should have won a Nobel Peace Prize, right?

Update: Joke’s over. The vacancy was removed from Spotify’s careers page.
