Why you’ll love SEDNA

SEDNA is email reimagined, an intelligent communications system for high-performance teams that gives more time back for the work that matters.

We are building a unique, scalable, and secure shared inbox solution that helps global businesses escape the gravity of the 300,000,000,000 (and counting) emails sent every year. Unifying customers’ existing technology with our innovative digital workspace, SEDNA redefines the “how” and “why” of business communications.

We’re delivering and refining a revolutionary, shared system of action that reduces email volume by as much as 95%.

Every day at SEDNA, we help enterprise businesses communicate and collaborate more effectively. And every day that we use SEDNA ourselves, we see the value of email reimagined.

At SEDNA, we work hard and strive for results. We also value people’s lives outside of work. The people of SEDNA are world travellers, devoted parents, ultra marathon runners, knitting enthusiasts, animal lovers, ski adventurers, board games fans, microlight flyers, Canada Games athletes, foodies, emergency response volunteers, and so much more. We care deeply about fostering an inclusive, welcoming culture that allows everyone to flourish. We’re told that one of the best things about working at SEDNA is that everyone is empowered to solve large problems and that everyone’s opinion is valued.
