Spotify Offers President Obama a Job

President Barack Obama already has his first job offer once he departs the White House later this month.

The streaming music service Spotify posted a job listing on its website for President of Playlists. Call it a hunch, but I'm pretty sure Spotify wants the 44th president of the United States to fill the role.

Among the details posted on the listing's job description:

"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."

The prospective employee must have "at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation" and "good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize."

The job offer is in response to Obama joking about "waiting for my job at Spotify" once he finishes his presidential term.

Obama is a big fan of Spotify, sharing his summer playlist from the streaming service since 2015.
