Carl - Operations

“What I enjoy most about Applied is the challenging work and the opportunities I have to collaborate with other teams to develop amazing solutions.

In my current job, I get to work with some of the brightest people in the industry. I believe our diversity of thought and ideas help to fuel innovation.”


“One of the main reasons I chose to join Applied was its stability as a leading company in its industry. At first, I thought I would learn best practices and then go to a flashy start-up. But with all of the career development opportunities I have been given and been encouraged to make for myself - challenging new job roles, being supported by excellent mentors, working on projects that span the company and impact all employees, there’s just too much exciting stuff happening, and I'm looking forward to an exciting and long career.”


“Applied has provided me with an opportunity to develop solid fundamentals as a young professional in a fast-paced, technically challenging setting. Everyday I get to push the envelope of materials engineering. In my experience, even new college graduates can seize opportunities to make resounding contributions to the company and the industry as a whole.”
