With Obama leaving the White House on January 20th, he’s most likely been thinking about what he will spending his newly-found free time on.
He recently joked that he was hoping for a job a Spotify once his duties as the 44th President of the United State were over – a request which the company’s CEO, 33 year-old Daniel Ek, supported by posting on his Twitter page:
“I heard you were interested in a role at Spotify. Have you seen this one?” before linking to a job vacancy for a newly announced role, titled “President of Playlists”.
“We believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background, lead to a better environment for everyone” reads the advert.
The job vacancy details that applicants should have a good team spirit, excellent work ethic and a friendly and warm attitude – which all relatively normal things to be listed in a job advertisement.
What is more unusual, however, is that the ideal candidate will have “at least eight years’ experience running a highly-regarded nation”, as well as a Nobel Peace Prize – qualifications which even the most experienced candidates are unlikely to possess.
The advert was seemingly aimed directly at the Commander-in-Chief, touching on Obama’s public speaking skills: “Let us be clear, you should be nothing short of one of the greatest speakers of all time.”
“As an organisation, we are full of hope, and always open to change” it explains. Well, with any luck Spotify, you’ll have Obama knocking at your door any time soon.
