I can't find anything that has such meaning following your "sound pattern".

I agree with "enfrascado" if it means the worker is willfully focusing on his job; that, in Mexican slang would be "clavado", "metido":

- Juan está tan clavado en el libro, que no nos escuchó llegar.
- Estábamos tan metidos en el trabajo, que se nos hizo tarde sin darnos cuenta.
