If President Barack Obama is still wondering what to do when he leaves office next week, he has a ready job offer — from Spotify.
The world’s leading streaming service on Monday advertised an opening for “President of Playlists” — and said it was looking for someone with “at least eight years experience running a highly regarded nation.”
If it wasn’t any more obvious whom Spotify was seeking for the New York-based position, it asked for an applicant with “good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude and a Nobel Peace Prize.”
The Swedish company’s CEO Daniel Ek revealed the tongue-in-cheek offer over Twitter after Obama was quoted as joking about a job at Spotify.
Natalia Brzezinski, the wife of former US ambassador to Sweden Mark Brzezinski, wrote on Instagram that Obama told her at a White House reception last week that his 2013 visit to Stockholm was his “favorite trip.”
“‘I’m still waiting for my job at Spotify… Cuz’ I know y’all loved my playlist,'” she quoted Obama as saying.
Obama over two consecutive summers released Spotify playlists for vacation listening, revealing tastes heavy on classic soul and jazz.
