About the Jacksonville Jaguars 
The Jacksonville Jaguars are a professional football team and a member of the National Football League. The Jaguars are one of the NFL’s youngest franchises, and played its first regular season home game on September 3, 1995. The Jaguars are owned by Shahid Khan, a visionary leader whose businesses include Flex-N-Gate (auto parts) and Fulham Football Club (UK soccer team). The Jaguars play at TIAA Bank Field in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. Under Mr. Khan’s leadership, TIAA Bank Field has evolved to include some of the most unique stadium assets, including swim spas and 19 video boards, two of which are longer than a football field.

Job Questions:

  1. How did you hear about this job?

  2. Suppose there’s a bag with an equal number of 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 dollar bills. There’s a game where you get to reach in once to draw one bill that you get to keep. How much would you hypothetically pay to play this game? Now consider a variant of this game where, after drawing your first bill, you can choose to either keep the bill you drew or put the bill back into the bag and draw one more time – but then you must keep this new bill you draw. How much would you pay to play this variant? Briefly explain your thought process for both questions.

  3. Describe either the most interesting analysis you’ve conducted or the most thought-provoking sports analysis you’ve read about.

  4. Which non-sports organization do you admire for their use of data? Why?

  5. What are your salary expectations? (Must provide response.)
