I think it is another name of a solutions architect in cloud providers. For example, on AWS you can architect solutions using its services and literally use code to build such infrastructure using CloudFormation and, more recently, AWS CDK. CloudFormation can be viewed as a programing language, it has its syntax, rules, etc. CDK was built to make the same thing as CloudFormation, but with already established programming languages such as Java, TypeScript and so on. To build a cloud solution in have to have to know about scripts, automation, etc, making you a developer in some sense.
