They have released some OS X drivers in the past, so I guess it's not odd that that would continue.

Probably only a few man team though (their OS X team)

Apparently this job listing isn't really new, it's been on LinkedIn a while ago. So don't get too excited.

Nvidia always has job openings. I don't think they'll ever get back into full swing unless Apple ships more computers with Nvidia chips.

They constantly work with Apple and games developers. Nvidia and AMD maintain their own drivers on macOS.

Dear Debbie Downers,

    While it is understood that NVIDIA's presence in Mac computers for gaming or anything won't be in full swing anytime soon, Apple—save for their complete enthusiasm for all things iOS—won't be in full swing in desktop, desktop gaming or the server market (how's your XServe doing?) anytime soon, either. If you're interested in the latest AMD or NVIDIA offerings be sure to peruse macvidcards.com to see if they offer flashing services for the card you're interested in. I'll be settling for NVIDIA's Web Drivers as I hold my breath long enough for someone to fill this position, make GTX1080-capable macOS drivers and unicorns learn to balance Chinaware on their horns.
