Employee Spotlight: Karl

This edition of AppWorks’ Employee Spotlight is dedicated to Karl Jreijiri, Server Specialist and Developer. Around the office, Karl is known for his willingness to research unknowns and for the innovative tools he finds to improve client outcomes. Karl is willing to go above and beyond in order to maintain server health, even if that means working through the night. Karl is attuned to trends in technology, and is quick to suggest ways that AppWorks can stay on the cutting edge of both FileMaker and server trends.

Karl’s efforts are valued by clients and staff alike. President of AppWorks, Kimberly Carlson, adds, “Karl is a man of culture and integrity. He works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure data integrity for all of our clients. Although he is one of our newest employees, he has quickly become one of the most valuable. I have no doubt that Karl will one day rule the world with just one hand, because the other will be holding the finest espresso made.” Client Jen appreciates how “Karl meets any new project with unparalleled levels of forethought, respect, and exactitude.”

It’s nice to have a resource in our community that not only understands FileMaker, but also connected technologies like WebDirect and PHP. This allows our development to focus on making employees more efficient and our customer experience even more robust.

CEO of AppWorks, Matt Navarre, appreciates the know-how that Karl has brought to AppWorks, “Karl is an amazing resource. His love of making servers run smoothly has translated into countless improvements for our hosting customers, and he does it all with a sense of adventure and joy.” Karl’s carefully planned and researched approaches have been met with great results. 

It has been a great pleasure to work with Karl. He is very attentive to the details and conscientious of how changes will affect the entire outcome. Karl is a great addition to the AppWorks staff.

Karl’s favorite travel destination is Armenia, which is incidentally the home of his favorite food, Armenian Pork Steaks. Ever refined, Karl prefers classical music to the tune of either Rachmainoff or Tchaikovsky, and has been known to collect museum brochures. His favorite book is See You at the Top by Zig Ziglar, and his favorite video game is Company of Heroes.

Outside of the office, Karl enjoys spending time with his wife and watching rally races. Karl aspires to participate in rally racing one day, and we at AppWorks have no doubt that his vehicle would be the most efficient, best calibrated, and most closely monitored car in the field.
