If you’re looking for a new job this year, Spotify just posted a new company listing for a “President of Playlists.” “In this position you will be overseeing our music curation and playlists team, across offices around the world,” Spotify explains on its website. However, the job also has a few specific experience requirements I’m going to go out on a limb and say you probably don’t have.

From Spotify:

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!

Someone with good team spirit, excellent work ethic, a friendly and warm attitude, and a Nobel Peace Prize.

Hmmm. If only there was somebody out there who is about to be unemployed and fit this description.
