Jon Roth – Chief of Technology



Joined company: ?
age: ?
origin: Carvadiras, GB, Switzerland
ideology: anarchistic e-democracy
psychology: adversarial


Jon Roth grew up in the Bündner mountain area of Switzerland which may account for his down-to-earth yet highly independent mindset. While highly skilled in applied AI technologies, he also seems to display an adversarial attitude against authority.

He quit GLAZIAL multiple times just to negotiate a higher salary when rehired. The company has now bound him with an adhesive contract.


Jon Roth was already head of IT when these archives were started. A valued long-time employee of GLAZIAL, he has kept the company up to date with the constantly evolving technologies starting with the invention of the microchip in the 60s.

When GLAZIAL acquired it's own AI department in 2011, Jon Roth advised CEO Laurent Oprescu on the development of an AI-supported company software, which would later be branded as GESICHT.


Jon Roth is a necessary evil. Being the first and only IT Director at this company, he made sure that the digital infrastructure can only be maintained by himself. So he quit 3 times in critical times, and we were forced to rehire him - with a higher salary.

SARAH BIANCHI: I put an end to this rehire-at-higher-salary nonsense by binding this devil with an adhesive contract.
