Mountaintop is a new game studio creating multiplayer games for players that crave a challenge. We’re an independent, remote-first studio primarily located in the US. 

We’re creating the types of games that bring people together — and keep them together for “just one more round.” The types of games that inspired us as kids. The games that become our hobbies, and sometimes our obsessions. 

Games are a reflection of the teams that make them. So to make the best games, we’re building a studio that puts the team first — one that's collaborative, anti-crunch, diverse, and inclusive. 

We’d love for you to join us.


We’re looking for a Senior Technical Game Designer who’s passionate about building extraordinary new experiences that inspire others. 

You’ll play a crucial role in bringing our first title to life.

    • Contributing to concept, direction, and gameplay for all Mountaintop projects
    • Working collaboratively with other disciplines to bring out the best ideas, translating them into compelling prototypes
    • Inventing, extending, and maintaining design processes, tools, and workflows
    • Contributing to a team culture that prides itself on excellence, innovation, trust, and respect


    • A love for playing and making amazing games
    • Experience creating prototypes via programming and/or scripting (e.g. Lua, Squirrel, C#, Javascript)
    • A minimum of 4 years design experience, including at least one shipped title
    • Self-motivated, with great time management skills
    • Willing to take risks and learn from failure


    • Experience working with Unreal Engine 4

    • Experience working on networked games
    • Computer science, engineering, mathematics, or related degree
