Group Controller 

Crayon is a leading player in the Software Asset Management (SAM) and software & cloud licensing field. We have had a rapid growth over the past few years both in terms of financials and geography. This growth is the result of both organic expansions into new regions and acquisition, but most importantly winning market share in our mature competitive markets.

Today we operate in 28 countries and have become Norway's 7th largest IT company with turnover in excess of NOK 9bn (LTM Q3 2018). Even if we are a global player we are still not a huge company. We are about 1400 team mates and with the entrepreneur spirit still at heart, this makes us agile and quick footed. This together with a flat organization creates a creative and result oriented culture where everyone has the opportunity to contribute and influence.
