Soon-to-be-former President Of The United States, Barack Obama, won’t have to worry after he’s out of the oval office, because he’s just been offered a juicy job at streaming giant Spotify, as their President of Playlists.
Spotify co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek put out the call to Obama on Twitter this morning, saying, “I heard you were interested in a role at Spotify. Have you seen this one?”

The Spotify job page for the new President of Playlists role lists a number of things the company is looking for in potential candidates, including:
- Having “at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation”
- The ability to create new playlist ideas, like “a playlist for shooting hoops with your friends”, “the perfect warm up playlist for addressing the nation about health care legislation that bears your name” or an “I just found my birth certificate” playlist
- Being “one of the greatest speakers of all time”
- “Good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize”
Obama is yet to respond to Ek’s offer, but he’s very, very qualified. He’s also a well-known music fan, having recently signed off on legislation banning ticket scalping bots, and being spotted dancing to ‘Hotline Bling’ with Usher at the White House in October.
