Submissive implies a negative meaning.

Any synonyms with a positive meaning?

I don't think you're going to find a single word.

It may come down to motivation. Is the person oblivious and just doesn't ask questions? Is he just committed to seeing a good end product and doesn't get distracted by silliness? Has the person been beaten down (figuaratively) so often in the past that he feels it's pointless to suggest improvements or better ways to do things?

You could say the person is committed or dedicated or focused as adjectives. I don't think you'll find a single-word noun (like "workhorse" which isn't right either). Though if it's the second reason I sugggest above, the compound noun "ideal coworker" fits for me.
Ok, thanks, Grammar Geek.

I guess this part will fit what I am looking for: "Is he just committed to seeing a good end product and doesn't get distracted by silliness?"

Sort of like if someone is asked to do a job, they will get right down to it and not throw a hissy fit. They won't complain why must I do this and why must I do that? Can I do it later, not now? Of course, you would ask necessary questions if need be, but you don't complain about the job being bothersome or requiring too much effort. Someone who you know will get the job done, as apposed to someone who will complain and drag their feet, and will just do the minimum requirements to perform the job.

I was thinking of the word conscientious here...
Perhaps

He/she is very enthusiastic about his/her job. (That's the best I can think of)

They display an excellent work ethic. I know it's not one word, but I think it's a good choice.
Thank you for the answers.
Wow, I'm surprised by the lack of good answers posted. I needed to answer this for myself and with a little digging came up with:

dilligent, industrious, conscientious (which you already mentioned) and sedulous.
