Born in Benguela, Édson started his professional career in Portugal at the age of 20, in the regional leagues. In 2005, his third division performances with Oliveira do Bairro Sport Clube caught the attention of top level side F.C. Paços de Ferreira.
Édson made his league debut against C.D. Nacional on 21 August 2005, in a 0–1 loss in Madeira. In his second season, as Paços reached the UEFA Cup for the first time ever, he scored four goals in 25 games, but was never an undisputed starter in his four-year stay.
In the 2009 summer, Édson signed with Cyprus' Ethnikos Achna FC. However, this spell would be quite unsuccessful, and he returned to his country in the following transfer window, joining C.R.D. Libolo.
