Talk about a sweet career transition: from President of the United States to President of Spotify s Playlists.Spotify, the 8-year-old music-streaming service based in Sweden, is looking for a sort of POTUS of pop charts.
And it has put up a presumably tongue-in-cheek job posting on its website, targeted squarely at the music-loving outgoing leader of the free world.Which makes sense, because Obama, after all, has curated his own playlists on Spotify for the past two years.
And he s good at it: The listening world responded enthusiastically, pushing his song list to the top of the charts.
Think the Beach Boys Good Vibrations, U Got the Look by Prince and Rock Steady by Aretha Franklin.
Obama has also shown an interest in working for the Swedish streamers, reportedly joking to someone at a party last week about his post-POTUS plans and saying I m still waiting for my job at Spotify.
On Monday, Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Ek tweeted the job opening at the president:So what exactly does the position entail?Simple, says Spotify: You will be overseeing our music curation and playlists team, across offices around the world.
