The minimum requirements for a cloud engineer typically include a bachelor's degree in computer science, information technology, or a related field. Strong knowledge of cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud is essential. Proficiency in scripting languages (e.x., Python), understanding of networking and security concepts, and experience with infrastructure as code tools (e.x., Terraform) are often required. Relevant certifications can enhance qualifications.
