We build protocols.

Auditless is a web3-native protocol studio focused on protocol strategy, design & development. We help crypto protocols improve their performance through strategic advisory and protocol development.

Not a dev shop.

Our process combines techniques from strategy consulting, product management and high assurance software engineering to ensure that the features we ship deliver bottom line impact. We are proud to collaborate with some of the most sophisticated and impactful companies in crypto.

Partnering with ambition.

We are not afraid to work on ambitious ideas from the earliest stages. We enjoy building products that aim to radically improve user experience in large markets and we actively seek out problems that are research heavy in their scope.

We do this for fun.

Auditless is an independently owned studio and not beholden to any outside interests. We actively choose projects that we think will be impactful and also challenge us in new ways.

Here’s a recent example of our work.

This is a Uniswap Foundation-specific opportunity.

The Uniswap Foundation is allocating a $1.2M grant to Auditless to spearhead the Protocol Grants Program. The scope of the grant will be to create value for all Uniswap ecosystem stakeholders by funding protocol development with the goal of reducing transaction costs and latency, increasing protocol flexibility and scalability and strengthening Uniswap’s value proposition as a developer platform. We will build relationships with core stakeholders in the ecosystem, stay on the cutting edge of DeFi innovation and design grants to support the continued development and innovation of the protocol. We will also collaborate closely with the grantee teams, facilitate collaboration between the grantees, existing protocol contributors and core stakeholders.

If you love Uniswap and are excited about helping to develop one of the most pivotal ecosystems in DeFi in collaboration with some of the highest calibre individuals in crypto, this is the role for you.
