Who wouldn't love Obama's Spotify job offer?
If President Barack Obama is looking for a new job after Jan. 20, Spotify has a position that seems made just for him.
The streaming music service has posted a "President of Playlists" position on its career opportunities webpage.
Some of the responsibilities for the job are to "provide world-class leadership to our playlist editors and supporting staff" and use "all available intelligence" to analyze playlist data.
The job requirements?
- 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.
Just to make sure Obama saw the posting, Spotify's founder and CEO, Daniel Ek, tweeted it to him Monday.
Obama hasn't said if he's interested.

It's popping up all over the place.
No, we said popping not ... nevermind.
Wine, cats, coffee — what more could you ask for?
A Georgia driver hit more than a bump in the road while driving.
Elysia Morris said she was driving her red BMW through a construction zone when a truck was driving toward her without stopping.
She said she veered to the left to avoid a possible collision when her car got stuck in fresh, wet concrete.
"[The truck is] still driving towards me, still honking the horn, so I bear over to the left and my car ends up submerged in fresh, wet concrete," Morris said.
Morris was rescued safely, but her car was lodged deep into the mixture.
She said the construction company told her the concrete would cure in an hour and the tow truck that responded asked her to sign a waiver saying the county wasn't responsible for any damages before they would tow it.
She refused to sign, and they left the concrete to dry around her car, cementing it into the street.
Construction workers eventually used a jack hammer to remove the block of concrete and the car and loaded it onto a flatbed truck.
Condolences are pouring in from all over ... for a girl they never knew. But her story speaks to all of them.
