It appears music streaming giant Spotify has an idea for Barack Obama’s next career move. With just 11 days left before President Obama leaves office, Spotify has gone ahead and posted a new job listing seeking a “President of Playlists,” and it appears they’re looking for someone with “presidential experience.” The position is seeking a person to help in creating new playlist ideas (i.e. Workout Playlists, Summer Playlists etc.); in addition they’ll also “attend daily briefings” and the ideal candidate “must have at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation” and “a good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize.” Sounds like a role only one person can fill?

Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek tweeted the job listing directly to President Obama as well:
