Born in El Masnou, Barcelona, Catalonia, Bruno was a product of RCD Espanyol's youth system. He only appeared once for the first team, playing seven minutes in a 3–1 home win over Rayo Vallecano on 29 September 2001; he was almost exclusively used by the B-side during his tenure, spending three of his four years in Segunda División B.
After a further two stints in his native region, with Gimnàstic de Tarragona (loan) and UE Lleida, Bruno joined UD Almería in the 2006 summer, being instrumental in the Andalusia side's first ever promotion to La Liga as a late bloomer. In 2007–08 he only missed four league games as his team overachieved for a final 8th place, and produced similar numbers in the following season.
In mid-June 2009 Bruno signed a three-year deal with Valencia CF, reuniting with former Almería manager Unai Emery. He had previously arranged a transfer to Real Betis, but the move collapsed as the club was eventually relegated.
On 25 June 2012, after a further 33 league appearances for Valencia in two seasons combined, free agent Bruno signed a two-year contract for Football League Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion. He scored his first goal for his new team on 24 November, helping to a 1–1 home draw against Bolton Wanderers.
