Pico Anderson's main position is at left-back but he can also switch to right-back, or even on the wing (left or right). He began his professional career at Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense. In July 2007, he was promoted to the first team due to the transfer of Lucio and injury to Bruno Teles, soon establishing himself as a core member. However, a series of poor performances led to him being dropped. The main complaint from then coach Mano Menezes was that Pico had no tactical awareness, and did not get back to defend quickly enough from supporting play.
In early 2008, Anderson went through an even worse phase when he returned from holiday overweight and struggled with regain his fitness. In the first half of the year, he oscillated with Hidalgo as a first team starter. However, Pico was on the substitute's bench at the end of April when Helder took charge of the position. However in July when, after a suspension of Helder, Pico regained his place in the first team.
Newly promoted German Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim was reported to have an interest in buying Anderson Pico from Grêmio during May 2008. Manager Ralf Rangnick travelled to Porto Alegre to observe the player in action.
Pico still has some defensive problems, such as poor marking. However, the strong support he provides on the left, crosses and runs make him a strong first team choice.
On 12 July 12, 2010, Anderson Pico was loaned to Brasiliense, to help the team's struggle to return to the elite of Brazilian soccer. In October 2010 Anderson signed a contract with the Pico Youth Caxias do Sul to rival Gauchão 2011.
Anderson Pico is also known for his powerful crosses, reminiscent of a corner kick.
