“I’m still waiting for my job at Spotify… ‘cause I know y’all loved my playlist,” – Barack Obama,

This is what the outgoing president of the United States of Amsterdam or something……. (America) to be precise, have said at a private reception on the White House last week with some selected ambassadors.

On an Instagram post made by Natalia Brzezinzski, (related to a/being a Swedish Ambassador or somehow somewhat), she detailed how President Obama is very accommodating and humorous, perhaps after he said his plan after his term was done. – working on Spotify.

Now, in response to President Obama’s statement, Spotify has a new position opening for “President of Playlists,” and it’s the perfect way to share your impeccable taste for all things music. Of course, it’s a joke aimed at outgoing President Obama.

But who knows, maybe President Obama really loves Spotify that much, and we will see him govern the playlists and cater to everybody, no, every Amsterdam people (lol).

A quote from the Spotify’s website says:

 “It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, or what music you love. We believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background, lead to a better environment for everyone. We value this and encourage you to come be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.”

However, the requirements and details for the specific job are here:

What you’ll do:

  • Provide world-class leadership to our playlist editors and supporting staff.
  • Identify and substantiate new playlist ideas, e.g. from a playlist for shooting hoops with your friends, to the perfect warm up playlist for addressing the nation about health care legislation that bears your name.
  • Analyze data and performance of playlists in a clear and transparent manner using all available intelligence. Attend daily briefings.
  • Celebrate our diversity of playlists, from Viva Latino (3.4 million followers) to Rap Caviar (5.3 million followers).

Who you are:

  • Have at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation.
  • Familiar with the Spotify platform, with experience in programming playlists at a federal level. Anything from an eclectic summer playlist, to a celebratory, “I just found my birth certificate” playlist.
  • Have good relationships with a wide range of artists and musicians. Ever had Kendrick Lamar play at your birthday bash? We’d love to hear about it!
  • Can speak passionately about playlists at press events. Let us be clear, you should be nothing short of one of the greatest speakers of all time.
  • A keen attention to detail and consistency. Able to work closely with other departments, so playlists can hold up to public scrutiny.
  • Someone with good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize.
