Mountaintop is a new game studio creating multiplayer games for players who 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 Release Manager who’s passionate about driving player value through regular updates. You’ll play a crucial role in delivering the best possible player experience with every release. 


    • Manage the deployment of hotfixes, patches, and major updates through various environments from development to staging to production
    • Collaborate closely with Product Managers, Game Designers, QA, and community managers to define the live service content calendar, including updates, seasonal events, and new feature releases
    • Coordinate quick responses and solutions for any issues affecting the live service, including outages, bugs, and other incidents.
    • Gather analytics data to measure the impact of each release on player engagement, retention, and in-game monetization
    • Ensure that each release is timely, meets high-quality standards, and aligns with the goals of the live service model.
    • Contributing to a team culture that prides itself on excellence, innovation, trust, and respect


    • A love for playing and making amazing games
    • 5+ years of experience in a release or project management role, specifically for live service games
    • Deep understanding of CI/CD pipelines and DevOps methodologies
    • Proficiency with Jira and Confluence
    • Experience with analytics tools for monitoring service health and user engagement
    • Self-motivated, with great time management skills
    • Willing to take risks and learn from failure


    • Medical, Dental, Vision, and Life insurance (100% of employee premiums paid, 90% of dependent premiums paid)
    • 401k plan
    • Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
    • Unlimited PTO
    • Remote-work Friendly
    • *Specific perks (benefits) are applicable to regular, full-time employees only (benefits are not applicable to contractors). Benefits are determined by country of residency and are in compliance with local, state, and country regulations.*
