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

He may have left the White House, but Obama will not be unemployed for too long. 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? Spotify CEO, Daniel Ek gave @BarackObama a heads-up on Twitter with a link to the affectionate ad: (the article continues after the ad)

The advert also takes a swipe at Donald Trump, saying the President of Playlists must “analyze data and performance of playlists… using all available intelligence”.

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