Berklee alumna Anahita Bahri B.M. ’15 is a music data and insights manager for Netflix. She refers to her work as “data storytelling.”
“I help surface insights and trends to the music team,” she says. “A lot of people are intimidated by spreadsheets, but I help translate them and answer questions. How much have we spent to date on licensing music from a certain label? How much did we pay for a certain piece of music, and how well did it perform?”
"Berklee gave me a great understanding of the music industry," says Bahri, who majored in music business/management. "At Netflix, we touch so many aspects of the industry: composers, labels, producers, performance rights organizations. We owe them money for anything we stream, and we pay them so they can pay the composers who own the rights to the music. Even my conducting minor has given me a different perspective on the other people we’re working with at Netflix.”
