Do you love Spotify, the world’s largest music streaming service? Would you like to work there? Well, Spotify just created a brand new position at the company, President of Playlists.
How great does that sound? You’d get shape and design what over 100 million monthly users listen to. You could make a rocking, workout playlist, maybe a soft piano playlist for studying or even a playlist of hidden gems only you know about. If this is your dream job, you better dust off your LinkedIn and make sure your cover letter pops. It sounds like a pretty tough job to get hired for.
Here’s the job description:
What you’ll do:
- Provide world-class leadership to our playlist editors and supporting staff.
- Identify and substantiate new playlist ideas, e.g. from a playlist for shooting hoops with your friends, to the perfect warm up playlist for addressing the nation about health care legislation that bears your name.
- Analyze data and performance of playlists in a clear and transparent manner using all available intelligence. Attend daily briefings.
- Celebrate our diversity of playlists, from Viva Latino (3.4 million followers) to Rap Caviar (5.3 million followers).
Wait a minute, “health care legislation that bears your name”, sounds like they already have someone in mind for the job. Oh well. It’s still a good idea to try your hardest, there’s a pretty good chance the candidate Spotify is hoping for is going to turn down the job.
