Fährmann made his professional debut for Schalke on 13 September 2008 in 3–3 draw away to Borussia Dortmund. On 16 September 2008 he played his first international match against APOEL F.C. in a UEFA Cup tie.
He returned to Schalke in 2011 after the team sold Manuel Neuer to FC Bayern Munich for a fee of 22 million euros. In the 2011 DFL- Supercup, Fährmann was the Man of the Match. After 90 minutes, the game finished 0–0 and it went on directly to a penalty shootout. Fährmann held two penalty kicks; one from Kevin Großkreutz and one from Ivan Perisic, thus allowing Schalke 04 to raise the Supercup trophy for the first time in the club's history. In the start of 2013–14 season, he was the second choice keeper behind Timo Hildebrand. While Hildebrand was injured, he became the first choice goalkeeper and his impressive performances saw him keep the number one spot for the remainder of the season.
On 4 May 2014, Schalke announced that Fährmann extended his contract with Schalke until 30 June 2019.
