Aussies looking for opportunities – 6th Mar 2018

Kaitlyn Lieschke – Environmental Science and Data Analysis

G’day all! My name is Kaitlyn Lieschke and I’m looking for environmental science and data analysis positions. I’m trained as an atmospheric chemist and data analyst but my skills are very transferable and I’m open to any opportunities that I’d be a good fit for, particularly those that would allow me to stay in atmospheric or environmental science.

I’ve been working in air quality research for 3+ years and am currently working as a graduate student researcher at UC Berkeley. My work has involved a lot of statistical analysis of large data sets to determine trends and changes in air quality both in the Bay Area and back home in Australia. I have extensive knowledge of python and R, great written and verbal communication skills and love problem solving and analytical thinking.

You can see my resume and get links to my LinkedIn and GitHub accounts on my website and you can contact me at Let me know of any opportunities.

Rena – Product

My name is Rena and I just moved to San Francisco from Sydney. At my last full-time role as Advertising Product Manager at Allure Media (the Australian publisher of POPSUGAR, Business Insider, WhoWhatWear Network and Gizmodo Media Group), I build and manage the advertising product roadmap; from brainstorming to successful launch of the ad products.

A recent successful project that I have managed is the launch of a premium video ad partnered with AOL. Essentially, my role as a Project Manager is to manage the launch of the product on 3 different websites – Business Insider, POPSUGAR and Gizmodo (each has their own CMS and engineering teams). I ensure clear communication across the teams so they are aware and updated on project milestones, status, and delivery.

I have 6 years experience in digital advertising and publishing. I am highly experienced in ad operations, campaign management, project managing, data analytics, insights, digital trends to assist the Commercial and Editorial teams to sell on-brand and on-strategy commercial products.
