BT Associate Test Analyst in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

About BT Technology, Service & Operation (TSO)

We’re BT’s internal service unit, and we’re responsible for the innovation, design, development and delivery of the processes, networks and platforms that run the BT business – our centre in Malaysia undertakes development projects using enterprise information technologies to improve customer service and enable us to invest and grow the business.

We work closely with each of BT’s customer-facing lines of business to create new products and make sure that existing services evolve to meet the needs of their customers. And we’re always looking towards the future – we manage most of BT’s research and development, and are responsible for BT’s worldwide patent portfolio of more than 4,500 patents and applications. We’re continuing BT’s long history of innovation. In 1926 we held the world’s first two-way, trans-Atlantic conversation by radio telephone from our wireless station near Rugby. And in 1943, Tommy Flowers, working in the telecommunications division of the General Post Office (as we were at the time), developed the world’s first programmable electronic computer, Colossus. In 1968, we installed the world’s first digital telephone exchange. We laid the world’s first, purpose-designed optical fibre submarine cable in Loch Fyne, Scotland in 1980.

We’re building on this great legacy to keep developing and delivering the technology that will allow BT’s customers to thrive in a fast-changing world.
