Elisabeth “Liz” Markham is the 27-year-old quantitative strategist on Survivor: Kaôh Rong — Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty. Before the MIT graduate joined the Brains Tribe, she was working as an algorithm developer at Hudson River Trading in New York City. She writes computer programs that forecast stock prices and trade automatically for the Wall Street firm.
Hudson River Trading “is always on the lookout for the best and brightest to join our team” but is it a coincidence that the first job listed on the company’s Careers page is Liz’s job, Algo Developer? Note: One of the requirements is: “You are capable of working independently as well as part of a team.” Survivor: Kaôh Rong — Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty airs Wednesdays at 8pm on CBS.
